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.

Seven Group Holdings's P/E ratio

Seven Group Holdings's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Seven Group Holdings shares trade at around 22x 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.

Seven Group Holdings's EBITDA

Seven Group Holdings's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.5 billion (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Seven Group Holdings's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Seven Group Holdings share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 27.42% of net profits

Recently Seven Group Holdings has paid out, on average, around 27.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.27% 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 1.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Seven Group Holdings's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.46 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 13 September 2023 (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 $22.1625 up to $39.18. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SVW.AU volatility(beta: 1.24)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Seven Group Holdings's is 1.24. This would suggest that Seven Group Holdings'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).
