Alternative ways to invest in Iofina

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

Iofina 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 Iofina 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 Iofina P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA.

Iofina's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Iofina's shares trade at around 7x recent earnings.

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

    Iofina's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is Β£10.6 million.

    The EBITDA is a measure of Iofina'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.
