Is Shopify stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Shopify's P/E ratio

Shopify's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 388x. In other words, Shopify shares trade at around 388x 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.

Shopify's PEG ratio

Shopify's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 26.1997. 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 Shopify's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shopify share dividends

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

Have Shopify's shares ever split?

Shopify's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 28 June 2022. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Shopify shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Shopify shares which in turn could have impacted Shopify's share price.

Shopify share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Shopify's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.6304 up to $93.254. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SHOP.US volatility(beta: 1.97)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Shopify's is 1.9732. This would suggest that Shopify's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
