Is Riot Blockchain stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Riot Blockchain's P/E ratio

Riot Blockchain's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 56x. In other words, Riot Blockchain shares trade at around 56x 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.

Riot Blockchain share dividends

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

Have Riot Blockchain's shares ever split?

Riot Blockchain's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 30 March 2016. So if you had owned 8 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 Riot Blockchain shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Riot Blockchain shares which in turn could have impacted Riot Blockchain's share price.

Riot Blockchain share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Riot Blockchain's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.25 up to $23.66. 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 Riot Blockchain's is 4.1113. This would suggest that Riot Blockchain's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
