Is Zscaler under- or over-valued?

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

Zscaler's PEG ratio

Zscaler's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.8011. 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 Zscaler's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Zscaler share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Zscaler's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$125.12 up to US$376.11. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ZS.US volatility(beta: 1.11)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Zscaler's is 1.1134. This would suggest that Zscaler'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).
