EV/EBITDA and It’s analysis

Introduction:-

Just like the PEratio (price to earning), the EV/EBITDA is very famous for the valuation of the company. EV stands for enterprise value and EBITDA stand for Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA). And it compares company on very different stages on the basis of the company’s earning. If it is rightly calculated then it reveals the secret that what is the current position of the company? Is company’s share is undervalued or overvalued?
Although the PE ratio typically used as the go-to-valuation tool, there are benefits of using the PEratio along with the EV/EBITDA. By using both ratios you get more accurate results about company’s current status.
Many investors look for companies that have low valuation by using PE and EV/EBITDA and solid dividend growth.
