Is it a good time to buy Westport Fuel Systems stock?

Is Westport Fuel Systems 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

Westport Fuel Systems's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 29x. In other words, Westport Fuel Systems shares trade at around 29x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Have Westport Fuel Systems's shares ever split?

Westport Fuel Systems's shares were split on a 2:7 basis on 23 July 2008. So if you had owned 7 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Westport Fuel Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 250% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Westport Fuel Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Westport Fuel Systems's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Westport Fuel Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.03 up to $12.95. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Westport Fuel Systems's is 2.8987. This would suggest that Westport Fuel Systems's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
