Valuing SSP Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SSP Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SSP 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 23x. In other words, SSP Group shares trade at around 23x 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.
SSP Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.37. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into SSP Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
SSP Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £254.9 million.
