Is Audinate Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Audinate Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Audinate Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Audinate Group's P/E ratio
Audinate Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2355x. In other words, Audinate Group shares trade at around 2355x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Audinate Group's EBITDA
Audinate Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2 million (£0.0 million).

Over the last 12 months, Audinate Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.51 up to $9.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Audinate Group's is 1.6131. This would suggest that Audinate Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
