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 141x. In other words, Macquarie Telecom Group shares trade at around 141x 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 $56.9 million (£0.0 million).

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

Have Macquarie Telecom Group 's shares ever split?

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.
