Is Redrow 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

Redrow'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, Redrow 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.


Redrow's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £328 million.

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


Revenue TTM £1.9 billion
Operating margin TTM 16.81%
Gross profit TTM £419 million
Return on assets TTM 7.31%
Return on equity TTM 14.52%
Profit margin 13.1%
Book value 5.452p
Market capitalisation £2.3 billion

Redrow share dividends


Dividend yield: 3.81% of stock value


Forward annual dividend yield: 3.8% of stock value


Dividend payout ratio: 39.52% of net profits

Redrow has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 3.81% of its share value annually.

Redrow has paid out, on average, around 39.52% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.8% 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 3.8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Redrow's case, that would currently equate to about 24.5p per share.

While Redrow'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 22 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Redrow's shares ever split?

Redrow's shares were split on a 20:21 basis on 7 April 2019. So if you had owned 21 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 20 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Redrow shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 5% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Redrow shares which in turn could have impacted Redrow's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Redrow's shares have ranged in value from as little as 393.8566p up to 743.4083p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RDW.LSE volatility(beta: 1.76)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (LSE average) beta is 1, while Redrow's is 1.7631. This would suggest that Redrow's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
