Is AudioCodes stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing AudioCodes stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AudioCodes's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AudioCodes's P/E ratio
AudioCodes's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, AudioCodes shares trade at around 23x 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.
AudioCodes's PEG ratio
AudioCodes's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.83. 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 AudioCodes's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
AudioCodes's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $40.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a AudioCodes's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

AudioCodes share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 23.81% of net profits
Recently AudioCodes has paid out, on average, around 23.81% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AudioCodes shareholders could enjoy a 1.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AudioCodes's case, that would currently equate to about $0.35 per share.
While AudioCodes's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that AudioCodes is investing more in its future growth.
AudioCodes's most recent dividend payout was on 28 February 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have AudioCodes's shares ever split?
AudioCodes's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 October 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AudioCodes shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AudioCodes shares which in turn could have impacted AudioCodes's share price.
AudioCodes share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, AudioCodes's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.62 up to $37.1089. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
