Is Valmec under- or over-valued?
Valuing Valmec stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Valmec 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Valmec 's P/E ratio
Valmec 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, Valmec shares trade at around 38x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Valmec 's EBITDA
Valmec 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.5 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Valmec 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Have Valmec 's shares ever split?
Valmec 's shares were split on a 1:40 basis on 7 October 2013. So if you had owned 40 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 Valmec shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Valmec shares which in turn could have impacted Valmec 's share price.
Valmec share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Valmec 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.13 up to $0.34. 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 Valmec 's is 1.2154. This would suggest that Valmec '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).
