Have Riot Blockchain's shares ever split?

Riot Blockchain's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 30 March 2016. So if you had owned 8 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Riot Blockchain shares – just the quantity.

Is it a good time to buy Riot Blockchain stock?

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 Riot Blockchain under- or over-valued?

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

Riot Blockchain's P/E ratio

Riot Blockchain's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Riot Blockchain shares trade at around 25x recent earnings.

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

Riot Blockchain's EBITDA

Riot Blockchain's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$238.4 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Riot Blockchain's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Riot Blockchain share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Riot Blockchain's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$7.8 up to US$20.65. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Riot Blockchain's is 4.193. This would suggest that Riot Blockchain's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
