Is Canadian Solar stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Canadian Solar stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Canadian Solar's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Canadian Solar's P/E ratio
Canadian Solar's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Canadian Solar shares trade at around 16x 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.
Canadian Solar's PEG ratio
Canadian Solar's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.29. 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 Canadian Solar's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Canadian Solar's EBITDA
Canadian Solar's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $660.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Canadian Solar's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Canadian Solar share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Canadian Solar's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.15 up to $47.69. 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 Canadian Solar's is 1.3551.
