Is it a good time to buy Adobe Systems Incorporated stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. However, this is not a recommendation. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Adobe Systems Incorporated under- or over-valued?

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

Adobe Systems Incorporated's P/E ratio

Adobe Systems 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 47x. In other words, Adobe Systems Incorporated shares trade at around 47x 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.

Adobe Systems Incorporated's PEG ratio

Adobe Systems Incorporated's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7588. 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 Adobe Systems 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.

Adobe Systems Incorporated's EBITDA

Adobe Systems Incorporated's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$7.8 billion (£6.2 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Adobe Systems Incorporated's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Adobe Systems Incorporated share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Adobe Systems Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$433.97 up to US$638.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ADBE.US volatility(beta: 1.27)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
