Is Smartgroup Corporation under- or over-valued?

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 19x. In other words, Smartgroup Corporation shares trade at around 19x 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 share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 96.94% of net profits
Recently Smartgroup Corporation has paid out, on average, around 96.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.54% 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 4.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Smartgroup Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.365 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 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
