Is Trade Desk stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Trade Desk stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Trade Desk's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Trade Desk's P/E ratio
Trade Desk's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 715x. In other words, Trade Desk shares trade at around 715x 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.
Trade Desk's PEG ratio
Trade Desk's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.8297. 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 Trade Desk's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Trade Desk's EBITDA
Trade Desk's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $33.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Trade Desk's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

We're not expecting Trade Desk to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Trade Desk's shares ever split?
Trade Desk's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 16 June 2021. 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 Trade Desk shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Trade Desk shares which in turn could have impacted Trade Desk's share price.
Trade Desk share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Trade Desk's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39 up to $86.88. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Trade Desk's is 1.7949. This would suggest that Trade Desk's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
