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 34x. In other words, BCI Minerals shares trade at around 34x 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 dividends
We're not expecting BCI Minerals to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have BCI Minerals's shares ever split?
BCI Minerals's shares were split on a 1.0026:1 basis on 29 June 2009. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 1.0026 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BCI Minerals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BCI Minerals shares which in turn could have impacted BCI Minerals's share price.
BCI Minerals share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, BCI Minerals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.2 up to $0.31. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while BCI Minerals's is 1.122. This would suggest that BCI Minerals's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
