Is Z Energy under- or over-valued?
Valuing Z Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Z Energy 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Z Energy 's P/E ratio
Z Energy 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Z Energy shares trade at around 25x recent earnings.
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.
Z Energy 's PEG ratio
Z Energy 's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0035. 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 Z Energy 's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Z Energy 's EBITDA
Z Energy 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $219.6 million.
