Is ASA Gold and Precious Metals stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing ASA Gold and Precious Metals stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ASA Gold and Precious Metals's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ASA Gold and Precious Metals's P/E ratio
ASA Gold and Precious Metals's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, ASA Gold and Precious Metals shares trade at around 14x 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.

Have ASA Gold and Precious Metals's shares ever split?
ASA Gold and Precious Metals's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 4 May 2010. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ASA Gold and Precious Metals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ASA Gold and Precious Metals shares which in turn could have impacted ASA Gold and Precious Metals's share price.
ASA Gold and Precious Metals share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, ASA Gold and Precious Metals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.04 up to $23.7782. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while ASA Gold and Precious Metals's is 1.0176. This would suggest that ASA Gold and Precious Metals'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).
