Is SingPost under- or over-valued?

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

SingPost's P/E ratio

SingPost's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 44x. In other words, SingPost shares trade at around 44x recent earnings.

SingPost's PEG ratio

SingPost's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.44. 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 SingPost's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

SingPost's EBITDA

SingPost's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is S$120.2 million.

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

SingPost share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 116.44% of net profits

Recently SingPost has paid out, on average, around 116.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.82% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SingPost shareholders could enjoy a 1.82% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SingPost's case, that would currently equate to about S$0.011 per share.

SingPost'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 22 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

SingPost share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SingPost's shares have ranged in value from as little as S$0.625 up to S$0.7833. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

S08.SG volatility(beta: 0.83)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (SG average) beta is 1, while SingPost's is 0.8334. This would suggest that SingPost's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
