Is GoPro under- or over-valued?
Valuing GoPro stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of GoPro's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
GoPro's P/E ratio
GoPro's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, GoPro shares trade at around 4x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
GoPro's PEG ratio
GoPro's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0108. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into GoPro's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
GoPro's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$113.3 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a GoPro's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||US$1.1 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||9.49%|
|Gross profit TTM||US$315.7 million|
|Return on assets TTM||7.63%|
|Return on equity TTM||10.4%|
|Market capitalisation||US$1.4 billion|

GoPro share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, GoPro's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$7.02 up to US$13.79. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while GoPro's is 1.0928. This would suggest that GoPro's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
