Is Whitefield under- or over-valued?
Valuing Whitefield stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Whitefield 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Whitefield 's P/E ratio
Whitefield 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 62x. In other words, Whitefield shares trade at around 62x 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.
|Revenue TTM||$12.7 million|

|Gross profit TTM||$12.7 million|

Whitefield share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 2.05% of net profits
Recently Whitefield has paid out, on average, around 2.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Whitefield shareholders could enjoy a 3.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Whitefield 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.205 per share.
While Whitefield 's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Whitefield is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Whitefield share price volatility
