Is SPX Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

SPX Corporation's P/E ratio

SPX Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, SPX Corporation shares trade at around 6x 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.

SPX Corporation's PEG ratio

SPX Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1464. 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 SPX Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

SPX Corporation's EBITDA

SPX Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $187.6 million.

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

Have SPX Corporation's shares ever split?

SPX Corporation's shares were split on a 3971:1000 basis on 27 September 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3971 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SPX Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 74.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SPX Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted SPX Corporation's share price.

SPX Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SPX Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $51.63 up to $68.24. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SPXC.US volatility(beta: 1.34)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 SPX Corporation's is 1.3411. This would suggest that SPX Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
