Is Akerna stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Akerna stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Akerna's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Akerna's P/E ratio
Akerna's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 0x. In other words, Akerna shares trade at around 0x 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.
|Revenue TTM||$10.8 million|
|Gross profit TTM||$8.2 million|
|Return on assets TTM||-25.53%|

Akerna share dividends
We're not expecting Akerna to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Akerna's shares ever split?
Akerna's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 7 November 2022. So if you had owned 20 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Akerna shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Akerna shares which in turn could have impacted Akerna's share price.
Akerna share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Akerna's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.23 up to $2.798. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Akerna's is 2.7958. This would suggest that Akerna's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
