Is CSP under- or over-valued?

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

CSP's P/E ratio

CSP's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 52x. In other words, CSP shares trade at around 52x 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.

CSP share dividends

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

Have CSP's shares ever split?

CSP's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 19 April 1999. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CSP shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CSP shares which in turn could have impacted CSP's share price.

CSP share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CSP's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.77 up to $12.53. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CSPI.US volatility(beta: 1.71)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 CSP's is 1.706. This would suggest that CSP's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
