Is The Charles Schwab Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing The Charles Schwab Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of The Charles Schwab Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
The Charles Schwab Corporation's P/E ratio

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
