Is Senex Energy under- or over-valued?
Valuing Senex Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Senex Energy 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Senex Energy 's P/E ratio
Senex Energy 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Senex Energy shares trade at around 13x 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.
Senex Energy 's EBITDA
Senex Energy 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $52.8 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Senex Energy 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Senex Energy share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 24.66% of net profits
Recently Senex Energy has paid out, on average, around 24.66% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Senex Energy shareholders could enjoy a 2.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Senex Energy 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.09 per share.
While Senex Energy 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Senex Energy is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Senex Energy 's shares ever split?
Senex Energy 's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 21 March 2021. So if you had owned 8 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Senex Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Senex Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Senex Energy 's share price.
Senex Energy share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Senex Energy 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.2156 up to $4.55. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Senex Energy 's is 1.785. This would suggest that Senex Energy 's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
