Is Metals Australia under- or over-valued?
Valuing Metals Australia stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Metals Australia 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Metals Australia 's P/E ratio
Metals Australia 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Metals Australia shares trade at around 6x 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.
