Is Sunstone Metals under- or over-valued?
Valuing Sunstone Metals stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sunstone Metals 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sunstone Metals 's P/E ratio
Sunstone Metals 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Sunstone Metals shares trade at around 7x 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.

Sunstone Metals share dividends
We're not expecting Sunstone Metals to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Sunstone Metals 's shares ever split?
Sunstone Metals 's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 5 November 2014. 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 Sunstone Metals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sunstone Metals shares which in turn could have impacted Sunstone Metals 's share price.
Sunstone Metals share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Sunstone Metals 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.01 up to $0.021. 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 Sunstone Metals 's is 1.7143. This would suggest that Sunstone Metals 's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
