Is AstroNova stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

AstroNova's P/E ratio

AstroNova's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, AstroNova shares trade at around 22x 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.

AstroNova's EBITDA

AstroNova's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $15.4 million.

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

AstroNova share dividends

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

Have AstroNova's shares ever split?

AstroNova's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 2 July 2006. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AstroNova shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AstroNova shares which in turn could have impacted AstroNova's share price.

AstroNova share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AstroNova's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.79 up to $18.83. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ALOT.US volatility(beta: 0.62)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while AstroNova's is 0.618. This would suggest that AstroNova's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
