Is Live Ventures stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Live Ventures's P/E ratio

Live Ventures's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Live Ventures shares trade at around 3x 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 Live Ventures's shares ever split?

Live Ventures's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 7 December 2016. So if you had owned 6 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 Live Ventures shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Live Ventures shares which in turn could have impacted Live Ventures's share price.

Live Ventures share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Live Ventures's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.37 up to $45.2. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LIVE.US volatility(beta: 1.42)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Live Ventures's is 1.4163. This would suggest that Live Ventures's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
