Is Shoe Zone 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

Shoe Zone's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Shoe Zone shares trade at around 8x 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.

EBITDA

Shoe Zone's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £21.8 million.

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

Do Shoe Zone shares pay dividends?

1.3%

Dividend yield: 1.32% of stock value

1.3%

Forward annual dividend yield: 1.32% of stock value

10.4%

Dividend payout ratio: 10.42% of net profits

Shoe Zone has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 1.32% of its share value annually.

Shoe Zone has paid out, on average, around 10.42% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.32% 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 1.32% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Shoe Zone's case, that would currently equate to about 2.5p per share.

While Shoe Zone's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that the company is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Shoe Zone's shares have ranged in value from as little as 61.0882p up to 205p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SHOE.LSE volatility(beta: 1.38)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 Shoe Zone's is 1.3761. This would suggest that Shoe Zone's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
