Is Champion Iron under- or over-valued?
Valuing Champion Iron stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Champion Iron's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Champion Iron's P/E ratio
Champion Iron's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Champion Iron shares trade at around 12x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Have Champion Iron's shares ever split?
Champion Iron's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 11 September 2012. 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 Champion Iron shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Champion Iron shares which in turn could have impacted Champion Iron's share price.
Champion Iron share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Champion Iron's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.415 up to $3.35. 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 Champion Iron's is 1.988. This would suggest that Champion Iron's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
