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 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

Webjet's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $141.9 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Webjet's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

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 7 June 2007. So if you had owned 4 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 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 $3.44 up to $6.33. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WEB.AU volatility(beta: 2.27)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Webjet's is 2.268. This would suggest that Webjet's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
