Is Downer Edi under- or over-valued?

Valuing Downer Edi stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Downer Edi's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Downer Edi's PEG ratio

Downer Edi's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 10.24. 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 Downer Edi's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Downer Edi's EBITDA

Downer Edi's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $374.8 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Downer Edi's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Downer Edi share dividends

We're not expecting Downer Edi to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Downer Edi's shares ever split?

Downer Edi's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 20 November 2003. 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 Downer Edi shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Downer Edi shares which in turn could have impacted Downer Edi's share price.

Downer Edi share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Downer Edi's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.5939 up to $5.18. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DOW.AU volatility(beta: 1.57)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Downer Edi's is 1.57. This would suggest that Downer Edi's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
