Is GMS stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing GMS stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of GMS's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
GMS's P/E ratio
GMS'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, GMS 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.
GMS's PEG ratio
GMS's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.73. 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 GMS's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
GMS's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $413.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a GMS's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$3.9 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||7.81%|
|Gross profit TTM||$1.1 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||7.51%|
|Return on equity TTM||22.22%|
|Market capitalisation||$2.4 billion|

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while GMS's is 2.0035. This would suggest that GMS's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
