Is Dynavax Technologies Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Dynavax Technologies Corporation's P/E ratio

Dynavax Technologies Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares trade at around 5x 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.

Have Dynavax Technologies Corporation's shares ever split?

Dynavax Technologies Corporation's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 9 November 2014. So if you had owned 10 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 Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dynavax Technologies Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Dynavax Technologies Corporation's share price.

Dynavax Technologies Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Dynavax Technologies Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.26 up to $17.48. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DVAX.US volatility(beta: 1.43)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
