Is SG Fleet under- or over-valued?

Valuing SG Fleet stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SG Fleet's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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 16x. In other words, SG Fleet shares trade at around 16x 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 PEG ratio

SG Fleet's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.5652. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into SG Fleet's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

SG Fleet's EBITDA

SG Fleet's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $98.9 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a SG Fleet's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

SG Fleet share dividends

74%

Dividend payout ratio: 73.78% of net profits

Recently SG Fleet has paid out, on average, around 73.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.4% 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 4.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SG Fleet's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.126 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 24 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

SG Fleet share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SG Fleet's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.1322 up to $3.2257. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SGF.AU volatility(beta: 1.18)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while SG Fleet's is 1.1833. This would suggest that SG Fleet'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).
