Is Taoping stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Taoping's P/E ratio

Taoping's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2x. In other words, Taoping shares trade at around 2x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Taoping's EBITDA

Taoping's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.4 million.

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

Taoping share dividends

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

Have Taoping's shares ever split?

Taoping's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 29 July 2020. So if you had owned 6 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 Taoping shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Taoping shares which in turn could have impacted Taoping's share price.

Taoping share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Taoping's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.6002 up to $3.58. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TAOP.US volatility(beta: 0.74)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 Taoping's is 0.7411. This would suggest that Taoping's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
