How to buy shares in Zoom

  2. Open and fund your brokerage account. Complete an application with your personal and financial details, which will typically include your ID and tax file number. Fund your account with a bank transfer, credit card or debit card.
  3. Search for Zoom. Find the share by name or ticker symbol: ZM. Research its history to confirm it's a solid investment that matches your financial goals.
  4. Purchase now or later. Buy today with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until Zoom reaches your desired price. To spread out your risk, look into dollar-cost averaging, which smooths out buying using consistent intervals and amounts.
  5. Decide on how many to buy. At last close price of US$70.73, weigh your budget against a diversified portfolio that can minimise risk through the market's ups and downs. You may be able to buy a fractional share of Zoom, depending on your broker.

Is it a good time to buy Zoom 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 Zoom under- or over-valued?

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

Zoom's P/E ratio

Zoom's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, Zoom shares trade at around 30x 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.

Zoom's PEG ratio

Zoom's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.3638. 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 Zoom's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Zoom's EBITDA

Zoom's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$629.7 million (£0.0 million).

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

Zoom share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Zoom's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$58.87 up to US$75.9. 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 Zoom's is -0.089. This would suggest that Zoom's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Zoom has bucked the trend.
