Is Perion Network stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Perion Network stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Perion Network's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Perion Network's P/E ratio
Perion Network's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Perion Network shares trade at around 13x 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.
Perion Network's PEG ratio
Perion Network's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3952. 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 Perion Network's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Perion Network's EBITDA

Have Perion Network's shares ever split?
Perion Network's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 26 August 2018. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Perion Network shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Perion Network shares which in turn could have impacted Perion Network's share price.
Perion Network share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Perion Network's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.41 up to $33.09. 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 Perion Network's is 1.179. This would suggest that Perion Network'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).
