Is Yelp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Yelp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Yelp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.3 up to $39.27. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

YELP.US volatility(beta: 1.45)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 Yelp's is 1.4514. This would suggest that Yelp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
