Is Xpediator under- or over-valued?

Valuing Xpediator stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Xpediator's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Xpediator's P/E ratio

Xpediator's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 120x. In other words, Xpediator shares trade at around 120x 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.

Xpediator's EBITDA

Xpediator's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £7.3 million.

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

Xpediator share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 15000% of net profits

Recently Xpediator has paid out, on average, around 15000% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Xpediator shareholders could enjoy a 1.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Xpediator's case, that would currently equate to about 0.004p per share.

Xpediator's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Xpediator's shares ever split?

Xpediator's shares were split on 11 June 2020.

Xpediator share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Xpediator's shares have ranged in value from as little as 12.2896p up to 52p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

XPD.LSE volatility(beta: 1.33)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (LSE average) beta is 1, while Xpediator's is 1.3317. This would suggest that Xpediator's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
