Is EMCORE Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

EMCORE Corporation's P/E ratio

EMCORE 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 8x. In other words, EMCORE Corporation shares trade at around 8x 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.

EMCORE Corporation's PEG ratio

EMCORE Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.08. 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 EMCORE 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.

EMCORE Corporation's EBITDA

EMCORE Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $23.7 million.

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

EMCORE Corporation share dividends

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

Have EMCORE Corporation's shares ever split?

EMCORE Corporation's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 15 February 2012. So if you had owned 4 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 EMCORE Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for EMCORE Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted EMCORE Corporation's share price.

EMCORE Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, EMCORE Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.53 up to $10.87. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EMKR.US volatility(beta: 1.24)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 EMCORE Corporation's is 1.2397. This would suggest that EMCORE Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
