Is Viva Energy under- or over-valued?

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

Viva Energy's EBITDA

Viva Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $400.1 million (£0.0 million).

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

Viva Energy share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 145.52% of net profits

Recently Viva Energy has paid out, on average, around 145.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Viva Energy shareholders could enjoy a 4.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Viva Energy's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.156 per share.

Viva Energy'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").

Have Viva Energy's shares ever split?

Viva Energy's shares were split on a 0.97:1 basis on 18 October 2021. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 0.97 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Viva Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3.1% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Viva Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Viva Energy's share price.

Viva Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Viva Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.6756 up to $3.865. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VEA.AU volatility(beta: 0.67)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 Viva Energy's is 0.67. This would suggest that Viva Energy's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
