Is Motorpoint Group 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.

P/E ratio

Motorpoint Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, Motorpoint Group shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.

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

EBITDA

Motorpoint Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £17 million.

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