Is Coventry Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Coventry Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Coventry Group 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.
Coventry Group 's EBITDA
