Is COSOL under- or over-valued?
Valuing COSOL stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of COSOL's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
COSOL's P/E ratio
COSOL's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 36x. In other words, COSOL shares trade at around 36x 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.
COSOL's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a COSOL's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
