Is Monster Beverage stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Monster Beverage's P/E ratio

Monster Beverage's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, Monster Beverage shares trade at around 31x 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.

Monster Beverage's PEG ratio

Monster Beverage's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9034. 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 Monster Beverage's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Monster Beverage's EBITDA

Monster Beverage's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.1 billion.

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

Have Monster Beverage's shares ever split?

Monster Beverage's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 March 2023. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Monster Beverage shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Monster Beverage shares which in turn could have impacted Monster Beverage's share price.

Monster Beverage share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Monster Beverage's shares have ranged in value from as little as $47.1301 up to $61.225. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MNST.US volatility(beta: 0.76)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 Monster Beverage's is 0.757. This would suggest that Monster Beverage's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
