Is Macquarie Telecom Group under- or over-valued?

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

Macquarie Telecom Group 's P/E ratio

Macquarie Telecom Group 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 75x. In other words, Macquarie Telecom Group shares trade at around 75x 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.

Macquarie Telecom Group 's EBITDA

Macquarie Telecom Group 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $47.7 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Macquarie Telecom Group 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Macquarie Telecom Group share dividends

We're not expecting Macquarie Telecom Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Macquarie Telecom Group 's shares ever split?

Macquarie Telecom Group 's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 29 November 2005. 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 Macquarie Telecom Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Macquarie Telecom Group shares which in turn could have impacted Macquarie Telecom Group 's share price.

Macquarie Telecom Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Macquarie Telecom Group 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.2 up to $49.34. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MAQ.AU volatility(beta: 0.59)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 Macquarie Telecom Group 's is 0.5862. This would suggest that Macquarie Telecom Group 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
