Is Qantas under- or over-valued?
Valuing Qantas stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Qantas's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Qantas's PEG ratio
Qantas's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.52. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Qantas's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Qantas's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $143 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Qantas's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Have Qantas's shares ever split?
Qantas's shares were split on 26 October 2015. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Qantas shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new INF% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Qantas shares which in turn could have impacted Qantas's share price.
Qantas share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Qantas's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.18 up to $5.97. 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 Qantas's is 1.1953. This would suggest that Qantas'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).
