Is OZ Minerals under- or over-valued?

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

OZ Minerals's P/E ratio

OZ Minerals's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 45x. In other words, OZ Minerals shares trade at around 45x 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.

OZ Minerals's EBITDA

OZ Minerals's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $564.8 million (£295 million).

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

OZ Minerals share dividends

3%

Dividend payout ratio: 2.95% of net profits

Recently OZ Minerals has paid out, on average, around 2.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.92% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), OZ Minerals shareholders could enjoy a 0.92% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In OZ Minerals's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.08 per share.

While OZ Minerals's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that OZ Minerals is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 April 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have OZ Minerals's shares ever split?

OZ Minerals's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 29 May 2011. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your OZ Minerals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for OZ Minerals shares which in turn could have impacted OZ Minerals's share price.

OZ Minerals share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, OZ Minerals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.19 up to $28.19. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

OZL.AU volatility(beta: 1.04)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 OZ Minerals's is 1.0355. This would suggest that OZ Minerals'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).
