Is TPC Consolidated under- or over-valued?
Valuing TPC Consolidated stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of TPC Consolidated 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
TPC Consolidated 's P/E ratio
TPC Consolidated 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, TPC Consolidated shares trade at around 8x 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.
TPC Consolidated 's EBITDA
TPC Consolidated 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.5 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a TPC Consolidated 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TPC Consolidated share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 42.86% of net profits
Recently TPC Consolidated has paid out, on average, around 42.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.25% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TPC Consolidated shareholders could enjoy a 8.25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TPC Consolidated 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.18 per share.
While TPC Consolidated 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that TPC Consolidated may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have TPC Consolidated 's shares ever split?
TPC Consolidated 's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 21 May 2014. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your TPC Consolidated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for TPC Consolidated shares which in turn could have impacted TPC Consolidated 's share price.
TPC Consolidated share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, TPC Consolidated 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.0008 up to $4.4656. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
