Is Schaffer Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Schaffer Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Schaffer Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Schaffer Corporation's P/E ratio
Schaffer Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Schaffer Corporation shares trade at around 11x 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.
Schaffer Corporation's EBITDA
Schaffer Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $34.6 million.

Schaffer Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 46.78% of net profits
Recently Schaffer Corporation has paid out, on average, around 46.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.84% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Schaffer Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Schaffer Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.7 per share.
While Schaffer Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Schaffer Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Schaffer Corporation's shares ever split?
Schaffer Corporation's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 1 September 2000. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Schaffer Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Schaffer Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Schaffer Corporation's share price.
Schaffer Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Schaffer Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.2459 up to $18.9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
