Is Sasol stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Sasol stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sasol's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sasol's P/E ratio
Sasol's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Sasol shares trade at around 5x 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.
Sasol's PEG ratio
Sasol's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.1363. 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 Sasol's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Sasol's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $61.7 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Sasol's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$275.7 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||18.09%|
|Gross profit TTM||$135.4 billion|

Have Sasol's shares ever split?
Sasol's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 8 May 2012. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sasol shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sasol shares which in turn could have impacted Sasol's share price.
Sasol share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Sasol's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.3119 up to $27.0457. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Sasol's is 2.6022. This would suggest that Sasol's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
