Is Colfax under- or over-valued?

Valuing a stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge value. Check out the Colfax P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA

Colfax's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 29x. In other words, Colfax shares trade at around 29x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Colfax's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0958. A PEG ratio close to 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares offer reasonable value for the current rate of growth.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Colfax's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Colfax's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $597.8 million (£0.0 million).

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