Is Genuit 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

Genuit 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 68x. In other words, Genuit Group shares trade at around 68x 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.

EBITDA

Genuit Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £58.5 million.

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

Do Genuit Group shares pay dividends?

0.9%

Dividend yield: 0.85% of stock value

0.8%

Forward annual dividend yield: 0.84% of stock value

60.0%

Dividend payout ratio: 60% of net profits

Genuit Group has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 0.85% of its share value annually.

Genuit Group has paid out, on average, around 60% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.84% 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 0.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Genuit Group's case, that would currently equate to about 4.8p per share.

Genuit 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 22 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
