Is Sequoia Financial Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Sequoia Financial Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sequoia Financial Group 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sequoia Financial Group 's P/E ratio
Sequoia Financial 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 14x. In other words, Sequoia Financial Group shares trade at around 14x 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.
Sequoia Financial Group 's EBITDA
Sequoia Financial Group 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $12.2 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Sequoia Financial Group 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Sequoia Financial Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 22% of net profits
Recently Sequoia Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sequoia Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sequoia Financial Group 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.011 per share.
While Sequoia Financial Group 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Sequoia Financial Group is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Sequoia Financial Group 's shares ever split?
Sequoia Financial Group 's shares were split on a 1:100 basis on 2 November 2016. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sequoia Financial Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sequoia Financial Group shares which in turn could have impacted Sequoia Financial Group 's share price.
Sequoia Financial Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Sequoia Financial Group 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.4626 up to $0.7547. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Sequoia Financial Group 's is 0.3506. This would suggest that Sequoia Financial Group 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
