Is it a good time to buy A2 Milk 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 A2 Milk under- or over-valued?

Valuing A2 Milk stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of A2 Milk's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

A2 Milk's P/E ratio

A2 Milk's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, A2 Milk shares trade at around 35x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

A2 Milk's PEG ratio

A2 Milk's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.8532. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into A2 Milk's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

A2 Milk share dividends

We're not expecting A2 Milk to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

A2 Milk share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, A2 Milk's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.28 up to $20. 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 (AU average) beta is 1, while A2 Milk's is -0.1946. This would suggest that A2 Milk's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, A2 Milk has bucked the trend.
