Is Sandstorm Gold stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Sandstorm Gold's P/E ratio

Sandstorm Gold's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 39x. In other words, Sandstorm Gold shares trade at around 39x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Sandstorm Gold's EBITDA

Sandstorm Gold's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $81.2 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Sandstorm Gold's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Sandstorm Gold share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 11.21% of net profits

Recently Sandstorm Gold has paid out, on average, around 11.21% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sandstorm Gold shareholders could enjoy a 1.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sandstorm Gold's case, that would currently equate to about $0.06 per share.

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

Sandstorm Gold's most recent dividend payout was on 27 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sandstorm Gold's shares ever split?

Sandstorm Gold's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 8 May 2012. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sandstorm Gold shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sandstorm Gold shares which in turn could have impacted Sandstorm Gold's share price.

Sandstorm Gold share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sandstorm Gold's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.31 up to $9.31. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SAND.US volatility(beta: 0.94)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Sandstorm Gold's is 0.939. This would suggest that Sandstorm Gold's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
