Is Georgia Healthcare 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

Georgia Healthcare 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 16x. In other words, Georgia Healthcare Group shares trade at around 16x 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.

Dividend payout ratio: 28.84% of net profits

Georgia Healthcare Group has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 1.79% of its share value annually.

Georgia Healthcare Group has paid out, on average, around 28.84% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.79% 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 1.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Georgia Healthcare Group's case, that would currently equate to about £0.01 per share.

While Georgia Healthcare Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that it may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 June 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Georgia Healthcare Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as £0 up to £0. 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 (LSE average) beta is 1, while Georgia Healthcare Group's is 0.4029. This would suggest that Georgia Healthcare Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
