Is ServiceNow stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing ServiceNow stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ServiceNow's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ServiceNow's P/E ratio
ServiceNow's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 278x. In other words, ServiceNow shares trade at around 278x 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.
ServiceNow's PEG ratio
ServiceNow's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5229. 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 ServiceNow's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ServiceNow's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $788 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a ServiceNow's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

ServiceNow share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, ServiceNow's shares have ranged in value from as little as $337 up to $601.62. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while ServiceNow's is 1.0281. This would suggest that ServiceNow'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).
