Is Mercury Systems stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Mercury Systems's P/E ratio

Mercury Systems's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 700x. In other words, Mercury Systems shares trade at around 700x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Mercury Systems's PEG ratio

Mercury Systems's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.651. 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 Mercury Systems's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Have Mercury Systems's shares ever split?

Mercury Systems's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 December 1999. 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 Mercury Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mercury Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Mercury Systems's share price.

Mercury Systems share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Mercury Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $40.48 up to $72.28. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MRCY.US volatility(beta: 1)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 Mercury Systems's is 1.0045. This would suggest that Mercury Systems's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
