Is Smartgroup Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Smartgroup Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Smartgroup Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Smartgroup Corporation's P/E ratio
Smartgroup Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, Smartgroup Corporation shares trade at around 23x 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.
Smartgroup Corporation's EBITDA
Smartgroup Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $81.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Smartgroup Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Smartgroup Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 83.87% of net profits
Recently Smartgroup Corporation has paid out, on average, around 83.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Smartgroup Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 5.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Smartgroup Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.345 per share.
Smartgroup Corporation'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 7 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Smartgroup Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Smartgroup Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.1202 up to $7.7446. 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 Smartgroup Corporation's is 1.0088. This would suggest that Smartgroup Corporation'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).
