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

Dividend payout ratio: 113.68% of net profits
Recently MultiChoice Group has paid out, on average, around 113.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.7% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), MultiChoice Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.7% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In MultiChoice Group's case, that would currently equate to about R5.65 per share.
MultiChoice Group'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 8 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, MultiChoice Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as R9852.5678 up to R13824.5505. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (JSE average) beta is 1, while MultiChoice Group's is 0.5207. This would suggest that MultiChoice Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
