Alternative ways to invest in Union Jack Oil

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

Union Jack Oil 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 Union Jack Oil 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 Union Jack Oil P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA.

Union Jack Oil's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Union Jack Oil's shares trade at around 17x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United Kingdom stock market as of 09 November, 2023 (10). 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, Union Jack Oil's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the industry or those of similar companies.

    Union Jack Oil's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £1.7 million.

    The EBITDA is a measure of Union Jack Oil'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.
