Is MicroStrategy Incorporated under- or over-valued?
Valuing MicroStrategy Incorporated stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of MicroStrategy Incorporated's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
MicroStrategy Incorporated's P/E ratio
MicroStrategy Incorporated's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 256x. In other words, MicroStrategy Incorporated shares trade at around 256x recent earnings.
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.
MicroStrategy Incorporated's PEG ratio
MicroStrategy Incorporated's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.09. 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 MicroStrategy Incorporated's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
MicroStrategy Incorporated share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, MicroStrategy Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$132.56 up to US$535.21. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while MicroStrategy Incorporated's is 2.422. This would suggest that MicroStrategy Incorporated's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
