Is Papyrus Australia under- or over-valued?

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

Papyrus Australia 's P/E ratio

Papyrus 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 32x. In other words, Papyrus Australia shares trade at around 32x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14).

Papyrus Australia share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Papyrus Australia 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.008 up to $0.083. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PPY.AU volatility(beta: 1.92)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 Papyrus Australia 's is 1.9182. This would suggest that Papyrus Australia 's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
