Is ConvaTec 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.

P/E ratio

ConvaTec 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 51x. In other words, ConvaTec Group shares trade at around 51x 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

ConvaTec Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4908. 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 ConvaTec 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.

EBITDA

ConvaTec Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £386.8 million.

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

ConvaTec Group share dividends

Dividend yield: 2.22% of stock value

2.2%

Forward annual dividend yield: 2.22% of stock value

91.4%

Dividend payout ratio: 91.4% of net profits

ConvaTec Group has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 2.22% of its share value annually.

ConvaTec Group has paid out, on average, around 91.4% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 2.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ConvaTec Group's case, that would currently equate to about 5.9p per share.

ConvaTec Group'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 25 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
