Is WestStar Industrial under- or over-valued?
Valuing WestStar Industrial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of WestStar Industrial 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
WestStar Industrial 's P/E ratio

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.

Have WestStar Industrial 's shares ever split?
WestStar Industrial 's shares were split on a 1:50 basis on 19 April 2016. So if you had owned 50 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 WestStar Industrial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for WestStar Industrial shares which in turn could have impacted WestStar Industrial 's share price.
WestStar Industrial share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, WestStar Industrial 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.01 up to $0.028. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
