Is Pacific Current Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Pacific Current Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Pacific Current Group 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Pacific Current Group 's P/E ratio
Pacific Current 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 8x. In other words, Pacific Current Group shares trade at around 8x 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.
Pacific Current Group 's EBITDA
Pacific Current Group 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $36.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Pacific Current Group 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Pacific Current Group share dividends
We're not expecting Pacific Current Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Pacific Current Group 's shares ever split?
Pacific Current Group 's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 4 July 1989. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Pacific Current Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Pacific Current Group shares which in turn could have impacted Pacific Current Group 's share price.
Pacific Current Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Pacific Current Group 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.8 up to $7.4. 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 Pacific Current Group 's is 1.0616. This would suggest that Pacific Current Group 's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
