Is Shopping Centres Australasia Property Group under- or over-valued?

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

Shopping Centres Australasia Property Group's P/E ratio

Shopping Centres Australasia Property Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Shopping Centres Australasia Property Group shares trade at around 6x 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.

Shopping Centres Australasia Property Group share dividends

35%

Dividend payout ratio: 35.23% of net profits

Recently Shopping Centres Australasia Property Group has paid out, on average, around 35.23% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Shopping Centres Australasia Property Group shareholders could enjoy a 5.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Shopping Centres Australasia Property Group's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.152 per share.

While Shopping Centres Australasia Property Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Shopping Centres Australasia Property Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Shopping Centres Australasia Property Group share price volatility
