Is Perseus Mining under- or over-valued?

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

Perseus Mining 's P/E ratio

Perseus Mining 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Perseus Mining shares trade at around 7x 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.

Perseus Mining 's EBITDA

Perseus Mining 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $583.4 million (£0.0 million).

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

Perseus Mining share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 10.43% of net profits

Recently Perseus Mining has paid out, on average, around 10.43% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Perseus Mining shareholders could enjoy a 1.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Perseus Mining 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.033 per share.

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

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 March 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Perseus Mining 's shares ever split?

Perseus Mining 's shares were split on a 1.0032:1 basis on 21 May 2009. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 1.0032 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Perseus Mining shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Perseus Mining shares which in turn could have impacted Perseus Mining 's share price.

Perseus Mining share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Perseus Mining 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.4904 up to $2.53. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PRU.AU volatility(beta: 1)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 Perseus Mining 's is 0.999. This would suggest that Perseus Mining 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
