Is it a good time to buy Viva Energy REIT stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Viva Energy REIT under- or over-valued?

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

Viva Energy REIT's P/E ratio

Viva Energy REIT's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Viva Energy REIT shares trade at around 11x 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.

Viva Energy REIT share dividends

56%

Dividend payout ratio: 55.87% of net profits

Recently Viva Energy REIT has paid out, on average, around 55.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.92% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Viva Energy REIT shareholders could enjoy a 5.92% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Viva Energy REIT's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.14 per share.

Viva Energy REIT's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").

Viva Energy REIT share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Viva Energy REIT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.805 up to $2.99. 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 Viva Energy REIT's is 0.1759. This would suggest that Viva Energy REIT's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
