Is Boohoo under- or over-valued?

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

Boohoo's P/E ratio

Boohoo's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Boohoo shares trade at around 22x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

However, Boohoo's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the internet retail industry or those of similar companies.

Boohoo's EBITDA

Boohoo's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £130.1 million.

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