Is Snowflake 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.

PEG ratio

Snowflake's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.5666. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.

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

However, it's sensible to consider Snowflake's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Snowflake's is 1.0533. This would suggest that Snowflake's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
