Is BRiley Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

BRiley Financial's P/E ratio

BRiley Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, BRiley Financial shares trade at around 8x 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.

We're not expecting BRiley Financial to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have BRiley Financial's shares ever split?

BRiley Financial's shares were split on a 101:100 basis on 24 November 2016. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 101 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BRiley Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BRiley Financial shares which in turn could have impacted BRiley Financial's share price.

BRiley Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BRiley Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $40.4635 up to $86.3856. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RILY.US volatility(beta: 1.82)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while BRiley Financial's is 1.821. This would suggest that BRiley Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
