Is IDT Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

IDT Corporation's P/E ratio

IDT 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 11x. In other words, IDT Corporation shares trade at around 11x 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.

IDT Corporation's EBITDA

IDT Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $61.6 million.

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

IDT Corporation share dividends

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

Have IDT Corporation's shares ever split?

IDT Corporation's shares were split on a 1183:1000 basis on 31 July 2013. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1183 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your IDT Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 15.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for IDT Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted IDT Corporation's share price.

IDT Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, IDT Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.42 up to $67.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IDT.US volatility(beta: 1.15)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while IDT Corporation's is 1.148. This would suggest that IDT 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).
