You may be wondering whatâs the best way to value a company in the current climate. Hereâs one way.
How do you value JB Hi-Fi shares?
A common way among investors to determine if an ASX share is cheap or expensive is to look at the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio. This metric tells you how much the company is worth.
A P/E ratio can be broken down as the relationship between a companyâs share price and its earnings per share (EPS).
At the time of writing, JB Hi-Fi has a P/E ratio of 9.34. The formula to work out the P/E ratio is the current share price divided by EPS.
Due to the similar market capitalisation compared to Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi shares are slightly on the more expensive side.
Essentially, what this means is that you are paying $9.34 for every dollar that JB Hi-Fi collects in earnings.
In addition, a P/E ratio shows how much growth can be expected when invested in a company.
For example, a high P/E ratio tells us that investors are happy to pay more per share than what the company is earning. This is extremely common with new market entrants that have the liquidity to pursue high growth opportunities.
On the other hand, a low P/E ratio is more suited to stable companies that have an established market share. It could also mean that its shares are trading at a bargain given the share price fall.
