Is LivePerson stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

LivePerson's PEG ratio

LivePerson's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.92. 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 LivePerson's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

LivePerson share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, LivePerson's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.96 up to $30.01. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LPSN.US volatility(beta: 1.41)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 LivePerson's is 1.4102. This would suggest that LivePerson's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
