Is WideOpenWest under- or over-valued?

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

WideOpenWest's P/E ratio

WideOpenWest's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2x. In other words, WideOpenWest shares trade at around 2x 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.

WideOpenWest's PEG ratio

WideOpenWest's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.19. 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 WideOpenWest's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

WideOpenWest's EBITDA

WideOpenWest's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $162 million.

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