Is BCI Minerals under- or over-valued?

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

BCI Minerals's P/E ratio

BCI Minerals's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 278x. In other words, BCI Minerals shares trade at around 278x 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.

BCI Minerals share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BCI Minerals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.099 up to $0.285. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BCI.AU volatility(beta: 2.14)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 BCI Minerals's is 2.1428. This would suggest that BCI Minerals's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
