Is Airbus under- or over-valued?

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

Airbus's P/E ratio

Airbus's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Airbus shares trade at around 18x recent earnings.

Airbus's PEG ratio

Airbus's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0521. 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 Airbus's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Have Airbus's shares ever split?

Airbus's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 17 October 2013. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Airbus shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Airbus shares which in turn could have impacted Airbus's share price.

Airbus share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Airbus's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.8 up to $38.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EADSY.US volatility(beta: 1.59)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (PINK average) beta is 1, while Airbus's is 1.5904. This would suggest that Airbus's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
