Is Knowles Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Knowles Corporation's P/E ratio

Knowles 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 25x. In other words, Knowles Corporation shares trade at around 25x 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.

Knowles Corporation's PEG ratio

Knowles Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.12. 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 Knowles 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.

Knowles Corporation's EBITDA

Knowles Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $178.7 million.

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

KN.US volatility(beta: 1.39)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 Knowles Corporation's is 1.3943. This would suggest that Knowles Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
