Is Webjet under- or over-valued?
Valuing Webjet stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Webjet's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Webjet's P/E ratio
Webjet's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 44x. In other words, Webjet shares trade at around 44x 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.
Webjet's PEG ratio
Webjet's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.81. 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 Webjet's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Webjet's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $108.1 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Webjet's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$433.1 million|
|Operating margin TTM||31.98%|
|Gross profit TTM||$40.2 million|
|Return on assets TTM||4.33%|
|Return on equity TTM||6.82%|
|Market capitalisation||$2.5 billion|

Webjet share dividends
We're not expecting Webjet to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Webjet's shares ever split?
Webjet's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 8 June 2007. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Webjet shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Webjet shares which in turn could have impacted Webjet's share price.
Webjet share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Webjet's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.92 up to $7.99. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Webjet's is 1.891. This would suggest that Webjet's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
