Is Roku stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Roku's P/E ratio

Roku's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 50x. In other words, Roku shares trade at around 50x 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.

Roku's EBITDA

Roku's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $174.6 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Roku's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Roku share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Roku's shares have ranged in value from as little as $57.78 up to $350.6. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ROKU.US volatility(beta: 1.68)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 Roku's is 1.6792. This would suggest that Roku's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
