Is Fanhua under- or over-valued?
Valuing Fanhua stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Fanhua's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Fanhua's P/E ratio
Fanhua'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, Fanhua shares trade at around 9x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Fanhua's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $309.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Fanhua's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$3.3 billion|

Fanhua share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 79.28% of net profits
Recently Fanhua has paid out, on average, around 79.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Fanhua shareholders could enjoy a 8.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fanhua's case, that would currently equate to about $4.335 per share.
Fanhua'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.
Fanhua's most recent dividend payout was on 21 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Fanhua share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Fanhua's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.57 up to $17.6359. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Fanhua's is 0.5109. This would suggest that Fanhua's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
