Valuing SILK Laser stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SILK Laser's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SILK Laser's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, SILK Laser shares trade at around 24x 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.
SILK Laser's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $17.1 million (£9 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a SILK Laser's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$97.6 million|
|Operating margin TTM||9.14%|
|Gross profit TTM||$40 million|
|Return on assets TTM||4.12%|
|Return on equity TTM||7.63%|
|Market capitalisation||$177.4 million|

Dividend payout ratio: 129.67% of net profits
Recently SILK Laser has paid out, on average, around 129.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SILK Laser shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SILK Laser's case, that would currently equate to about A$0 per share.
SILK Laser'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 20 November 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
SILK Laser's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 15 January 2003. So if you had owned 4 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 SILK Laser shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for SILK Laser shares which in turn could have impacted SILK Laser's share price.
Over the last 12 months, SILK Laser's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.582 up to $3.4524. 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 SILK Laser's is 0.968. This would suggest that SILK Laser's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
