Is Steadfast under- or over-valued?
Valuing Steadfast stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Steadfast's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Steadfast's P/E ratio
Steadfast's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 42x. In other words, Steadfast shares trade at around 42x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Steadfast's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $258 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Steadfast's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Steadfast share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 1.04% of net profits
Recently Steadfast has paid out, on average, around 1.04% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Steadfast shareholders could enjoy a 2.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Steadfast's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.104 per share.
While Steadfast's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Steadfast is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
