Is Regis Healthcare under- or over-valued?

That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Regis Healthcare 's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Regis Healthcare share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 4.08% of net profits
Recently Regis Healthcare has paid out, on average, around 4.08% of net profits as dividends.

In Regis Healthcare 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.082 per share.
While Regis Healthcare 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Regis Healthcare is investing more in its future growth.
