Is Cerence under- or over-valued?

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

Cerence's P/E ratio

Cerence's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 40x. In other words, Cerence shares trade at around 40x 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.

Cerence's EBITDA

Cerence's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $89.3 million.

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

Cerence share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cerence's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.66 up to $127.8. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
