Is Broadwind under- or over-valued?

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

Broadwind's P/E ratio

Broadwind's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Broadwind shares trade at around 7x 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.

Broadwind's PEG ratio

Broadwind's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.05. 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 Broadwind's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Broadwind's EBITDA

Broadwind's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $651,000.

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

Broadwind share dividends

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

Have Broadwind's shares ever split?

Broadwind's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 22 August 2012. So if you had owned 10 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 Broadwind shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Broadwind shares which in turn could have impacted Broadwind's share price.

Broadwind share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Broadwind's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.72 up to $12.89. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BWEN.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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Broadwind's is 1.3401. This would suggest that Broadwind's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
