Is Rural Funds Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Rural Funds Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Rural Funds Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Rural Funds Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Rural Funds Group shares trade at around 10x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Rural Funds Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $53.5 million (£0.0 million).

Rural Funds Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 78.19% of net profits
Recently Rural Funds Group has paid out, on average, around 78.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Rural Funds Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Rural Funds Group's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.115 per share.
Rural Funds Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Rural Funds Group's shares ever split?
Rural Funds Group's shares were split on a 188:187 basis on 9 July 2021. So if you had owned 187 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 188 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Rural Funds Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rural Funds Group shares which in turn could have impacted Rural Funds Group's share price.
