Valuing SDI Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SDI Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SDI 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 35x. In other words, SDI Group shares trade at around 35x 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.
SDI Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £5.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a SDI Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
