Is Pacific Star Network under- or over-valued?

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

Pacific Star Network 's P/E ratio

Pacific Star Network 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Pacific Star Network shares trade at around 17x 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 Star Network 's EBITDA

Pacific Star Network 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.3 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Pacific Star Network 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

We're not expecting Pacific Star Network to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Pacific Star Network 's shares ever split?

Pacific Star Network 's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 27 April 2011. 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 Pacific Star Network shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Pacific Star Network shares which in turn could have impacted Pacific Star Network 's share price.

Pacific Star Network share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Pacific Star Network 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.22 up to $0.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PNW.AU volatility(beta: 0.88)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 Pacific Star Network 's is 0.8781. This would suggest that Pacific Star Network 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
