Is TerraCom under- or over-valued?
Valuing TerraCom stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of TerraCom 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
TerraCom 's P/E ratio
TerraCom 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, TerraCom shares trade at around 25x 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.
TerraCom 's EBITDA
TerraCom 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $154.6 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a TerraCom 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$680.6 million|
|Operating margin TTM||11.63%|
|Gross profit TTM||$59.9 million|
|Return on assets TTM||11.81%|

Have TerraCom 's shares ever split?
TerraCom 's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 4 December 2017. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 1 share.

However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for TerraCom shares which in turn could have impacted TerraCom 's share price.
