Is Air New Zealand under- or over-valued?

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

Air New Zealand's PEG ratio

Air New Zealand's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.868. 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 Air New Zealand's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Air New Zealand's EBITDA

Air New Zealand's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $368 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Air New Zealand's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Air New Zealand share dividends

We're not expecting Air New Zealand to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Air New Zealand's shares ever split?

Air New Zealand's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 16 August 2004. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Air New Zealand shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Air New Zealand shares which in turn could have impacted Air New Zealand's share price.

Air New Zealand share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Air New Zealand's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.31 up to $1.865. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AIZ.AU volatility(beta: 1.71)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Air New Zealand's is 1.7102. This would suggest that Air New Zealand's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
