Is CPT Global under- or over-valued?

Valuing CPT Global stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of CPT Global's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

CPT Global's P/E ratio

CPT Global's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, CPT Global shares trade at around 10x 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.

CPT Global's EBITDA

CPT Global's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.2 million (£655,598).

The EBITDA is a measure of a CPT Global's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

CPT Global share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CPT Global's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.086 up to $0.285. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CGO.AU volatility(beta: 1.07)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while CPT Global's is 1.0671. This would suggest that CPT Global'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).
