Is Roblox Corp under- or over-valued?
Valuing Roblox Corp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Roblox Corp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Roblox Corp's PEG ratio
Roblox Corp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 8.1775. 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 Roblox Corp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Roblox Corp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Roblox Corp's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$24.88 up to US$47.65. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Roblox Corp's is 1.659. This would suggest that Roblox Corp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
