Is Ciena stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Ciena share dividends

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

Have Ciena's shares ever split?

Ciena's shares were split on a 1:7 basis on 24 September 2006. So if you had owned 7 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ciena shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ciena shares which in turn could have impacted Ciena's share price.

Ciena share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ciena's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.33 up to $54.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CIEN.US volatility(beta: 0.91)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Ciena's is 0.9129. This would suggest that Ciena's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
