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.

Zimplats share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 20.79% of net profits
Recently Zimplats has paid out, on average, around 20.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Zimplats shareholders could enjoy a 9.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Zimplats's case, that would currently equate to about A$1.208 per share.
