Is Total Produce 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

Total Produce's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Total Produce shares trade at around 19x 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

Total Produce's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £88 million.

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

Do Total Produce shares pay dividends?

2.0%

Dividend yield: 1.95% of stock value

1.9%

Forward annual dividend yield: 1.93% of stock value

58.5%

Dividend payout ratio: 58.45% of net profits

Total Produce has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 1.95% of its share value annually.

Total Produce has paid out, on average, around 58.45% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.93% 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 1.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Total Produce's case, that would currently equate to about 3.7p per share.

Total Produce'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 28 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Total Produce's shares have ranged in value from as little as 0p up to 0p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TOT.LSE volatility(beta: 1.4)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 Total Produce's is 1.4034. This would suggest that Total Produce's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
