Is Origin Materials stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Origin Materials's P/E ratio

Origin Materials's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Origin Materials shares trade at around 8x 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.

However, Origin Materials's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the chemicals industry or those of similar companies.

    Origin Materials share price volatility

    Over the last 12 months, Origin Materials's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.65 up to $8.05. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

    Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Origin Materials's is 0.852. This would suggest that Origin Materials's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
