Is Corum Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Corum Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Corum Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Corum Group's P/E ratio
Corum Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 124x. In other words, Corum Group shares trade at around 124x 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.
Corum Group's EBITDA
Corum Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $937,000 (£533,243).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Corum Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Corum Group share dividends
We're not expecting Corum Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Corum Group's shares ever split?
Corum Group's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 31 October 2005. So if you had owned 10 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 Corum Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Corum Group shares which in turn could have impacted Corum Group's share price.
Corum Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Corum Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.035 up to $0.088. 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 Corum Group's is 0.7438. This would suggest that Corum Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
