Is EQB stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing EQB stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of EQB's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
EQB's P/E ratio
EQB's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, EQB shares trade at around 9x recent earnings.
EQB's PEG ratio
EQB's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.27. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into EQB's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
|Revenue TTM||C$818.8 million|
|Operating margin TTM||47.72%|
|Gross profit TTM||C$744.9 million|
|Return on assets TTM||0.63%|
|Return on equity TTM||12.12%|
|Market capitalisation||C$2.6 billion|
TTM: trailing 12 months
EQB share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 13.94% of net profits
Recently EQB has paid out, on average, around 13.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.17% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), EQB shareholders could enjoy a 2.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In EQB's case, that would currently equate to about C$1.28 per share.
While EQB's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that EQB is investing more in its future growth.
EQB's most recent dividend payout was on 29 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have EQB's shares ever split?
EQB's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 October 2021. 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 EQB shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for EQB shares which in turn could have impacted EQB's share price.
EQB share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, EQB's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$44.2869 up to C$69.5699. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (TO average) beta is 1, while EQB's is 1.7435. This would suggest that EQB's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
