Alternative ways to invest in Vedanta

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

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

Vedanta's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Vedanta's shares trade at around 6x recent earnings.

That's relatively low 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 low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Vedanta's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $372.6 billion (£292.9 billion).

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