Is Livent stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Livent's P/E ratio

Livent's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Livent shares trade at around 26x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Livent's PEG ratio

Livent's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.1545. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

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

LTHM.US volatility(beta: 1.76)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 Livent's is 1.7602. This would suggest that Livent's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
