Is LiveRamp under- or over-valued?

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

LiveRamp's P/E ratio

LiveRamp'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, LiveRamp 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.

Shorting LiveRamp shares

There are currently 1.7 million LiveRamp shares held short by investors – that's known as LiveRamp's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% down from 1.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting LiveRamp shares can be evaluated.

LiveRamp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

LiveRamp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LiveRamp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LiveRamp shares traded daily (recently around 925477.77777778). LiveRamp's SIR currently stands at 1.89. In other words for every 100,000 LiveRamp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1890 shares are currently held short.

However LiveRamp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LiveRamp shares, or, against the total number of tradable LiveRamp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LiveRamp's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LiveRamp shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0356% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LiveRamp shares, roughly 36 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against LiveRamp.

LiveRamp share dividends

We're not expecting LiveRamp to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have LiveRamp's shares ever split?

LiveRamp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 November 1996. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your LiveRamp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for LiveRamp shares which in turn could have impacted LiveRamp's share price.

LiveRamp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, LiveRamp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.44 up to $80.065. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RAMP.US volatility(beta: 1.25)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 LiveRamp's is 1.252. This would suggest that LiveRamp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
