Is Nickel Mines under- or over-valued?

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

Nickel Mines 's P/E ratio

Nickel Mines 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Nickel Mines shares trade at around 11x 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.

Nickel Mines 's EBITDA

Nickel Mines 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $191.9 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Nickel Mines 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Nickel Mines share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nickel Mines 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.3 up to $1.015. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NIC.AU volatility(beta: 1.33)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 Nickel Mines 's is 1.3278. This would suggest that Nickel Mines 's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
