SG Fleet's P/E ratio
SG Fleet's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, SG Fleet shares trade at around 11x 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.
SG Fleet's EBITDA
SG Fleet's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $83.7 million (£0.0 million).

SG Fleet share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 117.59% of net profits
Recently SG Fleet has paid out, on average, around 117.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SG Fleet shareholders could enjoy a 4.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SG Fleet's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.06 per share.
SG Fleet's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
