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 16x. In other words, Smartgroup Corporation 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.

Smartgroup Corporation's EBITDA

Smartgroup Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $96.5 million (£0.0 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: 1.7% of net profits

Recently Smartgroup Corporation has paid out, on average, around 1.7% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.23% 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 5.23% 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.

While Smartgroup Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Smartgroup Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 March 2022 (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 $5.77 up to $9.6324. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SIQ.AU volatility(beta: 0.86)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Smartgroup Corporation's is 0.8586. This would suggest that Smartgroup Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
