Is BlackBerry under- or over-valued?

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

BlackBerry's EBITDA

BlackBerry's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $88 million.

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

BlackBerry share dividends

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

Have BlackBerry's shares ever split?

BlackBerry's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 21 August 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BlackBerry shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BlackBerry shares which in turn could have impacted BlackBerry's share price.

BlackBerry share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BlackBerry's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.62 up to $28.77. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BB.US volatility(beta: 1.07)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 BlackBerry's is 1.0692. This would suggest that BlackBerry's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
