Is Seven Group Holdings under- or over-valued?
Valuing Seven Group Holdings stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Seven Group Holdings's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

Seven Group Holdings share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 42.86% of net profits
Recently Seven Group Holdings has paid out, on average, around 42.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Seven Group Holdings shareholders could enjoy a 2.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Seven Group Holdings's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.42 per share.
While Seven Group Holdings's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Seven Group Holdings 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 16 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Seven Group Holdings share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Seven Group Holdings's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.92 up to $21.96. 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 Seven Group Holdings's is 1.6392. This would suggest that Seven Group Holdings's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
