Is Advanced Medical Solutions Group under- or over-valued?

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

Advanced Medical Solutions Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, Advanced Medical Solutions Group shares trade at around 34x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

PEG ratio

Advanced Medical Solutions Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5167. A PEG ratio over 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares are overvalued at the current rate of growth, or may anticipate an acceleration in growth.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Advanced Medical Solutions Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dividend payout ratio: 23.41% of net profits

Advanced Medical Solutions Group has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 0.75% of its share value annually.

Advanced Medical Solutions Group has paid out, on average, around 23.41% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.75% of the current stock value.
