Is Harsco Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Harsco Corporation's P/E ratio

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Harsco Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Harsco Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Harsco Corporation's share price.

Harsco Corporation share price volatility

This would suggest that Harsco Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
