Is XTEK under- or over-valued?
Valuing XTEK stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of XTEK 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
XTEK 's P/E ratio
XTEK 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 93x. In other words, XTEK shares trade at around 93x 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.
XTEK 's EBITDA
XTEK 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $15,997.
The EBITDA is a measure of a XTEK 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$42.7 million|
|Gross profit TTM||$8.6 million|
|Return on assets TTM||-0.72%|
|Return on equity TTM||2.73%|
|Market capitalisation||$43.1 million|
TTM: trailing 12 months
XTEK share dividends
We're not expecting XTEK to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have XTEK 's shares ever split?
XTEK 's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 1 December 2014. So if you had owned 10 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 XTEK shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for XTEK shares which in turn could have impacted XTEK 's share price.
XTEK share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, XTEK 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.385 up to $0.93. 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 XTEK 's is 0.9975. This would suggest that XTEK 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
