Is SeaLink Travel Group under- or over-valued?

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

SeaLink Travel Group 's P/E ratio

SeaLink Travel 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 214x. In other words, SeaLink Travel Group shares trade at around 214x recent earnings.

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.

SeaLink Travel Group 's EBITDA

SeaLink Travel Group 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $99.6 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a SeaLink Travel Group 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

SeaLink Travel Group share dividends

3%

Dividend payout ratio: 2.88% of net profits

Recently SeaLink Travel Group has paid out, on average, around 2.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SeaLink Travel Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SeaLink Travel Group 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.115 per share.

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

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

SeaLink Travel Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SeaLink Travel Group 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.9146 up to $10.64. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SLK.AU volatility(beta: 1.17)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while SeaLink Travel Group 's is 1.1669. This would suggest that SeaLink Travel Group 's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
