Alternative ways to invest in Luceco

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

Luceco 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 it a good time to buy Luceco stock?

Only you can make the decision on the time to leap... but here's some supporting information and analysis.

Use our graph to track the performance of LUCE stocks over time.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Luceco's shares have ranged in value from as little as 97.367 up to 162. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LUCE.LSE volatility(beta: 1.2)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 Luceco's is 1.197.

Is Luceco 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 Luceco P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA

Luceco'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, Luceco 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.

Luceco's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £24.6 million.

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