Is Mistras Group under- or over-valued?

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

Mistras Group's P/E ratio

Mistras Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 54x. In other words, Mistras Group shares trade at around 54x 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.

Mistras Group's PEG ratio

Mistras Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.89. 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 Mistras Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Mistras Group's EBITDA

Mistras Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $54.5 million.

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

However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mistras Group shares which in turn could have impacted Mistras Group's share price.

Mistras Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Mistras Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.66 up to $12.5687. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MG.US volatility(beta: 2)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
