Is Sylvania Platinum 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

Sylvania Platinum's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Sylvania Platinum shares trade at around 5x 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.


Sylvania Platinum's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £83.2 million.

Do Sylvania Platinum shares pay dividends?


Dividend yield: 9.2% of stock value


Forward annual dividend yield: 9.2% of stock value


Dividend payout ratio: 26.85% of net profits

Sylvania Platinum has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 9.20% of its share value annually.

Sylvania Platinum has paid out, on average, around 26.85% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.2% of the current stock value.

In Sylvania Platinum's case, that would currently equate to about 9.7p per share.

While Sylvania Platinum'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.
