Is National Vision stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

National Vision's P/E ratio

National Vision's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 58x. In other words, National Vision shares trade at around 58x 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.

National Vision's EBITDA

National Vision's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $187.5 million.

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

Over the last 12 months, National Vision's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.59 up to $45.86. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EYE.US volatility(beta: 1.51)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 National Vision's is 1.5148. This would suggest that National Vision's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
