Is Saunders International under- or over-valued?

Valuing Saunders International stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Saunders International 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Saunders International 's P/E ratio

Saunders International 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Saunders International shares trade at around 15x 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.

Saunders International 's EBITDA

Saunders International 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $9 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Saunders International 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Saunders International share dividends

13%

Dividend payout ratio: 12.5% of net profits

Recently Saunders International has paid out, on average, around 12.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Saunders International shareholders could enjoy a 4.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Saunders International 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.015 per share.

While Saunders International 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Saunders International is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Saunders International 's is 0.5747. This would suggest that Saunders International 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
