Is EZCORP under- or over-valued?
Valuing EZCORP stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of EZCORP's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
EZCORP's P/E ratio
EZCORP's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 41x. In other words, EZCORP shares trade at around 41x 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.
EZCORP's PEG ratio
EZCORP's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7102. 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 EZCORP's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
EZCORP's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $63 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a EZCORP's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$729.6 million|
|Operating margin TTM||4.43%|
|Gross profit TTM||$449.5 million|

EZCORP share dividends
We're not expecting EZCORP to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have EZCORP's shares ever split?
EZCORP's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 11 December 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your EZCORP shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for EZCORP shares which in turn could have impacted EZCORP's share price.
EZCORP share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, EZCORP's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.47 up to $8.8. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while EZCORP's is 1.3355. This would suggest that EZCORP's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
