Is Ventia Services Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Ventia Services Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ventia Services Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ventia Services Group's P/E ratio
Ventia Services Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Ventia Services Group shares trade at around 15x 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.
Ventia Services Group's EBITDA
Ventia Services Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $342.6 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Ventia Services Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Ventia Services Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 1.66% of net profits
Recently Ventia Services Group has paid out, on average, around 1.66% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ventia Services Group shareholders could enjoy a 5.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ventia Services Group's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.166 per share.
While Ventia Services Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ventia Services Group is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Ventia Services Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Ventia Services Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.1047 up to $3.0455. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Ventia Services Group's is 0.027. This would suggest that Ventia Services Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
