Is Capita stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Capita's P/E ratio

Capita's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Capita shares trade at around 3x recent earnings.

Capita share dividends

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

Have Capita's shares ever split?

Capita's shares were split on a 715:436 basis on 9 May 2018. So if you had owned 436 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 715 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Capita shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 39% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Capita shares which in turn could have impacted Capita's share price.

Capita share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Capita's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.62 up to $0.62. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CTAGF.US volatility(beta: 1.91)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (PINK average) beta is 1, while Capita's is 1.9091. This would suggest that Capita's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
