Is Vistry Group 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

Vistry 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 13x. In other words, Vistry Group shares trade at around 13x 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

Vistry Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £276.6 million.

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

Vistry Group share dividends

3.4%

Dividend yield: 3.38% of stock value

3.4%

Forward annual dividend yield: 3.35% of stock value

21.1%

Dividend payout ratio: 21.14% of net profits

Vistry Group has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 3.38% of its share value annually.

Vistry Group has paid out, on average, around 21.14% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.35% 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 3.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vistry Group's case, that would currently equate to about 40p per share.

While Vistry Group'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 6 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
