Is TPG Telecom under- or over-valued?

Valuing TPG Telecom stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of TPG Telecom's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

TPG Telecom's P/E ratio

TPG Telecom's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, TPG Telecom shares trade at around 38x 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.

TPG Telecom's EBITDA

TPG Telecom's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $795.6 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a TPG Telecom's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TPG Telecom share dividends

14%

Dividend payout ratio: 13.75% of net profits

Recently TPG Telecom has paid out, on average, around 13.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.57% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TPG Telecom shareholders could enjoy a 0.57% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TPG Telecom's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.05 per share.

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

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have TPG Telecom's shares ever split?

TPG Telecom's shares were split on 10 April 2008.

TPG Telecom share price volatility
