Is Koss Corporation under- or over-valued?

Valuing Koss Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Koss Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Koss Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 December 2009. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Koss Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Koss Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Koss Corporation's share price.

Koss Corporation share price volatility
