Is FOS Capital under- or over-valued?

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

FOS Capital's P/E ratio

FOS Capital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, FOS Capital shares trade at around 11x 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.

FOS Capital's EBITDA

FOS Capital's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $117,698 (£62,897).

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