Is Westoz Investment Company under- or over-valued?

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

Westoz Investment Company 's P/E ratio

Westoz Investment Company 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Westoz Investment Company shares trade at around 6x 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.

Westoz Investment Company share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 28.57% of net profits

Recently Westoz Investment Company has paid out, on average, around 28.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Westoz Investment Company shareholders could enjoy a 5.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Westoz Investment Company 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.06 per share.

While Westoz Investment Company 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Westoz Investment Company 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 5 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Westoz Investment Company 's shares ever split?

Westoz Investment Company 's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 13 August 2009. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Westoz Investment Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Westoz Investment Company shares which in turn could have impacted Westoz Investment Company 's share price.

Westoz Investment Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Westoz Investment Company 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.0251 up to $1.2586. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WIC.AU volatility(beta: 1.04)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Westoz Investment Company 's is 1.0356. This would suggest that Westoz Investment Company 's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
