Is Tap Oil under- or over-valued?
Valuing Tap Oil stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Tap Oil 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Tap Oil 's P/E ratio
Tap Oil 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Tap Oil shares trade at around 1x 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.
Tap Oil 's EBITDA
Tap Oil 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $13.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Tap Oil 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Tap Oil share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Tap Oil 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.062 up to $0.165. 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 Tap Oil 's is 1.0185. This would suggest that Tap Oil '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).
