Is Daily Mail and General Trust under- or over-valued?

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

Daily Mail and General Trust's P/E ratio

Daily Mail and General Trust'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, Daily Mail and General Trust shares trade at around 9x recent earnings.

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

Daily Mail and General Trust share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 105.24% of net profits

Recently Daily Mail and General Trust has paid out, on average, around 105.24% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Daily Mail and General Trust shareholders could enjoy a 3.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Daily Mail and General Trust's case, that would currently equate to about 0.24p per share.

Daily Mail and General Trust'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 3 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Daily Mail and General Trust's shares ever split?

Daily Mail and General Trust's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 21 February 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Daily Mail and General Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Daily Mail and General Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Daily Mail and General Trust's share price.

Daily Mail and General Trust share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Daily Mail and General Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as 520.5704p up to 821.4948p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
