Is Lynas under- or over-valued?
Valuing Lynas stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lynas's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Lynas's P/E ratio
Lynas's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 62x. In other words, Lynas shares trade at around 62x 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.
Lynas's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $161.9 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Lynas's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$489 million|
|Operating margin TTM||31.99%|

Have Lynas's shares ever split?
Lynas's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 29 November 2017. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lynas shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lynas shares which in turn could have impacted Lynas's share price.
Lynas share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Lynas's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.22 up to $11.39. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Lynas's is 0.616. This would suggest that Lynas's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
