Is Afya stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Afya's P/E ratio

Afya's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Afya shares trade at around 20x 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.


Afya's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $625.2 million.

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

Afya share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Afya's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.53 up to $27.12. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AFYA.US volatility(beta: 1.11)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Afya's is 1.108. This would suggest that Afya's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
