Alternative ways to invest in Vp

Buying shares in just one company is generally considered a riskier bet than investing in a range of investments - AKA a "diversified portfolio". Experts generally recommend holding a mix of investments in specific assets and funds. Funds are ready-made portfolios of multiple companies' shares (potentially including Vp), and the idea is that drops in the value of one constituent company's share price might be offset by rises in others.

Vp is a major part of the London stock exchange, so it's included in many global funds and investment trusts, as well as tracker-style exchange traded funds (ETFs).

Is Vp 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. Check out the Vp P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA

Vp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Vp shares trade at around 9x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United Kingdom stock market as of 09 November, 2023 (10). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Vp's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £92.5 million.

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