Is Qantas Airways under- or over-valued?

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

Qantas Airways's P/E ratio

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

TTM: trailing 12 months

Qantas Airways share dividends

47%

Dividend payout ratio: 46.91% of net profits

Recently Qantas Airways has paid out, on average, around 46.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Qantas Airways shareholders could enjoy a 6.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Qantas Airways's case, that would currently equate to about $0.89 per share.

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

Qantas Airways's most recent dividend payout was on 11 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 February 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Qantas Airways's shares ever split?

Qantas Airways's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 November 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Qantas Airways shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Qantas Airways shares which in turn could have impacted Qantas Airways's share price.

Qantas Airways share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Qantas Airways's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.43 up to $26. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

QABSY.US volatility(beta: 1.01)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (PINK average) beta is 1, while Qantas Airways's is 1.0078. This would suggest that Qantas Airways'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).
