Is 51job under- or over-valued?

Valuing 51job stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of 51job's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

51job's P/E ratio

51job's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 44x. In other words, 51job shares trade at around 44x 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.

51job's PEG ratio

51job's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 64.66. 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 51job's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

51job's EBITDA

51job's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $636.8 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a 51job's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

We're not expecting 51job to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have 51job's shares ever split?

51job's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 August 2014. 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 51job shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for 51job shares which in turn could have impacted 51job's share price.
