Is Bapcor under- or over-valued?

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

Bapcor's P/E ratio

Bapcor's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Bapcor shares trade at around 17x 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.

Bapcor's EBITDA

Bapcor's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $195.9 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Bapcor's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Bapcor share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 76.66% of net profits

Recently Bapcor has paid out, on average, around 76.66% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bapcor shareholders could enjoy a 4.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bapcor's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.21 per share.

Bapcor'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 6 March 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Bapcor share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bapcor's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.76 up to $6.9781. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BAP.AU volatility(beta: 0.55)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Bapcor's is 0.547. This would suggest that Bapcor's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
