Is Kogan under- or over-valued?

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

Kogan's P/E ratio

Kogan's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 80x. In other words, Kogan shares trade at around 80x 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.

Kogan's PEG ratio

Kogan's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2472. 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 Kogan's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Kogan's EBITDA

Kogan's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $10.2 million (£0.0 million).

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

Kogan share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kogan's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.1107 up to $8.6474. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KGN.AU volatility(beta: 1.48)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 Kogan's is 1.481. This would suggest that Kogan's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
