Is EP Global Opportunities Trust under- or over-valued?

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

EP Global Opportunities Trust's P/E ratio

EP Global Opportunities Trust's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, EP Global Opportunities Trust shares trade at around 14x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
