Is SolarWinds stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

SolarWinds's P/E ratio

SolarWinds's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, SolarWinds shares trade at around 34x 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.

SolarWinds's EBITDA

SolarWinds's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $165.2 million.

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

SolarWinds share dividends

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

Have SolarWinds's shares ever split?

SolarWinds's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 1 August 2021. So if you had owned 2 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 SolarWinds shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for SolarWinds shares which in turn could have impacted SolarWinds's share price.

SolarWinds share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SolarWinds's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.51 up to $14.36. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SWI.US volatility(beta: 0.88)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 SolarWinds's is 0.8765. This would suggest that SolarWinds's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
