Is Tabcorp under- or over-valued?
Valuing Tabcorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Tabcorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Tabcorp's P/E ratio
Tabcorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 39x. In other words, Tabcorp shares trade at around 39x 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.
Tabcorp's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $888 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Tabcorp's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$5.7 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||11.77%|
|Gross profit TTM||$5.7 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||3.44%|
|Return on equity TTM||4.23%|
|Market capitalisation||$10.7 billion|

Tabcorp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 1.12% of net profits
Recently Tabcorp has paid out, on average, around 1.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tabcorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tabcorp's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.145 per share.
While Tabcorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Tabcorp is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Tabcorp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Tabcorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.142 up to $5.225. 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 Tabcorp's is 1.2862. This would suggest that Tabcorp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
