Is Amtech Systems under- or over-valued?

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

Amtech Systems's P/E ratio

Amtech Systems's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 80x. In other words, Amtech Systems shares trade at around 80x 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.

Amtech Systems's PEG ratio

Amtech Systems's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.84. 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 Amtech Systems's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Amtech Systems's EBITDA

Have Amtech Systems's shares ever split?

Amtech Systems's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 15 March 1999. So if you had owned 2 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 Amtech Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Amtech Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Amtech Systems's share price.

Amtech Systems share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Amtech Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.83 up to $15.78. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ASYS.US volatility(beta: 1.54)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

This would suggest that Amtech Systems's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
