Is Switch stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Switch's P/E ratio

Switch's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 797x. In other words, Switch shares trade at around 797x 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.

Switch's EBITDA

Switch's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $297.4 million.

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

Switch share dividends

14%

Dividend payout ratio: 14.09% of net profits

Recently Switch has paid out, on average, around 14.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Switch shareholders could enjoy a 0.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Switch's case, that would currently equate to about $0.21 per share.

While Switch's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Switch is investing more in its future growth.

Switch's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Switch share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Switch's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.8786 up to $34.26. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SWCH.US volatility(beta: 0.59)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 Switch's is 0.5923. This would suggest that Switch's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
