Is London City Equities under- or over-valued?
Valuing London City Equities stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of London City Equities 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
London City Equities 's P/E ratio
London City Equities 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 205x. In other words, London City Equities shares trade at around 205x 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.
