Is The Mosaic Company under- or over-valued?

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

The Mosaic Company's P/E ratio

The Mosaic Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, The Mosaic Company shares trade at around 13x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

The Mosaic Company's PEG ratio

The Mosaic Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.1973. 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 The Mosaic Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

The Mosaic Company's EBITDA

The Mosaic Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$2.1 billion (£1.6 billion).

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

The Mosaic Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, The Mosaic Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$27.83 up to US$42.0659. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MOS.US volatility(beta: 1.51)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while The Mosaic Company's is 1.512. This would suggest that The Mosaic Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
