Is Dynatrace under- or over-valued?

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

Dynatrace's P/E ratio

Dynatrace's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 188x. In other words, Dynatrace shares trade at around 188x 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.

Dynatrace's EBITDA

Dynatrace's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $129.4 million.

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

DT.US volatility(beta: 1.41)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 Dynatrace's is 1.4112. This would suggest that Dynatrace's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
