Is Paladin Energy under- or over-valued?

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

Paladin Energy 's P/E ratio

Paladin Energy 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 51x. In other words, Paladin Energy shares trade at around 51x 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.

Paladin Energy share dividends

We're not expecting Paladin Energy to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Paladin Energy 's shares ever split?

Paladin Energy 's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 10 April 2024. 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 Paladin Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Paladin Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Paladin Energy 's share price.

Paladin Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Paladin Energy 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.515 up to $15.4. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PDN.AU volatility(beta: 1.76)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 Paladin Energy 's is 1.757. This would suggest that Paladin Energy 's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
