Is NMC Health 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

NMC Health's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 0x. In other words, NMC Health shares trade at around 0x 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.

EBITDA

NMC Health's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £539.9 million.

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

NMC Health has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 362.00% of its share value annually.

NMC Health has paid out, on average, around 17.78% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 362% of the current stock value.
