Is Zoom under- or over-valued?

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

Zoom's P/E ratio

Zoom's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 49x. In other words, Zoom shares trade at around 49x 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.

Zoom's PEG ratio

Zoom's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.1053. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Zoom's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Zoom's EBITDA

Zoom's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.2 billion.

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

Zoom share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Zoom's shares have ranged in value from as little as $177.12 up to $451.77. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Zoom's is -1.2878. This would suggest that Zoom's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Zoom has bucked the trend.
