Is it a good time to buy Sureserve Group stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Sureserve Group under- or over-valued?

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

Sureserve Group's P/E ratio

Sureserve 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, Sureserve 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.

Sureserve Group's EBITDA

Sureserve Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £12.9 million.

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

Sureserve Group share dividends

15%

Dividend payout ratio: 15.15% of net profits

Recently Sureserve Group has paid out, on average, around 15.15% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.79% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sureserve Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sureserve Group's case, that would currently equate to about 0.01p per share.

While Sureserve Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Sureserve Group is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 January 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Sureserve Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sureserve Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as 30.06p up to 67.95p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SUR.LSE volatility(beta: 1.23)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 Sureserve Group's is 1.2344. This would suggest that Sureserve Group's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
