Alternative ways to invest in Ameresco

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 Ameresco), and the idea is that drops in the value of one constituent company's share price might be offset by rises in others.

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

Is Ameresco 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 Ameresco P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA.

Ameresco's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, Ameresco's shares trade at around 30x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United States stock markets on average as of November 09, 2023 (20.44). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

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

Ameresco's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5693. A PEG ratio below 1 can be interpreted as meaning the shares are not overvalued given the current rate of growth.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Ameresco's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, it's sensible to consider Ameresco's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Ameresco's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $154.1 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of Ameresco'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.
