Is AFT Pharmaceuticals under- or over-valued?

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

AFT Pharmaceuticals's P/E ratio

AFT Pharmaceuticals's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 39x. In other words, AFT Pharmaceuticals shares trade at around 39x 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.
