Is Imax stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Imax's PEG ratio

Imax's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1217. 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 Imax's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


Imax's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $50.3 million.

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

Imax share dividends

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

Have Imax's shares ever split?

Imax's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 May 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Imax shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Imax shares which in turn could have impacted Imax's share price.

Imax share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Imax's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.13 up to $21.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IMAX.US volatility(beta: 1.35)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Imax's is 1.3488. This would suggest that Imax's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
