Is Overstock under- or over-valued?
Valuing Overstock stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Overstock's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Overstock's P/E ratio
Overstock's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Overstock shares trade at around 4x 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.
Overstock's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $107.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Overstock's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$2.6 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||3.68%|
|Gross profit TTM||$623.9 million|
