Is Stanmore Coal under- or over-valued?
Valuing Stanmore Coal stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Stanmore Coal 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Stanmore Coal 's P/E ratio
Stanmore Coal 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Stanmore Coal shares trade at around 5x 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.

Stanmore Coal share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 22.4% of net profits
Recently Stanmore Coal has paid out, on average, around 22.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Stanmore Coal shareholders could enjoy a 8.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Stanmore Coal 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.06 per share.
While Stanmore Coal 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Stanmore Coal is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Stanmore Coal 's shares ever split?
Stanmore Coal 's shares were split on a 34:33 basis on 26 April 2020. So if you had owned 33 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 34 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Stanmore Coal shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stanmore Coal shares which in turn could have impacted Stanmore Coal 's share price.
Stanmore Coal share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Stanmore Coal 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.5 up to $1.1453. 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 Stanmore Coal 's is 1.0924. This would suggest that Stanmore Coal '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).
