Is Wise 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

Wise's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Wise shares trade at around 5x 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.

However, Wise's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the software-infrastructure industry or those of similar companies.


Wise's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £62.4 million.

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

To put that into context you can compare it against similar companies.


Revenue TTM £421 million
Operating margin TTM 14.16%
Gross profit TTM £269.3 million
Return on assets TTM 1.12%
Return on equity TTM 12.82%
Profit margin 7.34%
Book value 17.095p
Market capitalisation £8 billion

TTM: trailing 12 months
