Is AstroNova stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing AstroNova stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AstroNova's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AstroNova's P/E ratio
AstroNova's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 109x. In other words, AstroNova shares trade at around 109x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

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