Is CoStar Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

CoStar Group's P/E ratio

CoStar Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 102x. In other words, CoStar Group shares trade at around 102x 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.

CoStar Group's PEG ratio

CoStar Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 8.637. 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 CoStar Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

CoStar Group's EBITDA

CoStar Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $282.5 million.

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

Have CoStar Group's shares ever split?

CoStar Group's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 27 June 2021. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CoStar Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CoStar Group shares which in turn could have impacted CoStar Group's share price.

CoStar Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CoStar Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $67.35 up to $100.38. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
