Is it a good time to buy Renren stock?

Is Renren under- or over-valued?

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

P/E ratio

Renren's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Renren shares trade at around 7x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.


Revenue TTM $25.2 million
Gross profit TTM $14.7 million
Return on assets TTM -4.72%
Return on equity TTM -34.31%
Profit margin 254.22%
Book value $7.706
Market capitalisation $439.3 million

Renren share dividends

Renren has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 909.65% of its share value annually.

Renren's most recent dividend payout was on 8 January 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 June 2018 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Renren's shares ever split?

Renren's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 8 January 2020. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Renren shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Renren shares which in turn could have impacted Renren's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Renren's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.51 up to $28.38. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RENN.US volatility(beta: 1.89)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 Renren's is 1.8931. This would suggest that Renren's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
