Is PTC stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing PTC stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PTC's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
PTC's P/E ratio
PTC's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 49x. In other words, PTC shares trade at around 49x 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.
PTC's PEG ratio
PTC's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.1238. 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 PTC's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
PTC's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $560.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a PTC's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$1.9 billion|

PTC share dividends
We're not expecting PTC to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have PTC's shares ever split?
PTC's shares were split on a 2:5 basis on 27 February 2006. So if you had owned 5 shares 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 PTC shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 150% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for PTC shares which in turn could have impacted PTC's share price.
PTC share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, PTC's shares have ranged in value from as little as $96.55 up to $135.1. 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 PTC's is 1.1367. This would suggest that PTC'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).
