How to buy AMTD Digital (HKD) shares

Learn how to easily invest in AMTD Digital shares.

Stock in AMTD Digital (NYSE: HKD) have been on a rollercoaster this week, jumping more than 3,000% in just days and a whopping 10,000% since the firm's IPO on the NYSE on July 15.

Since then, the stock has tumbled over 40% in 24 hours from its peak. There's no doubt this is a volatile situation.

AMTD Digital is a fintech and subsidiary of Hong Kong based investment bank AMTD Idea Group, which is also listed on the NYSE. It was founded in 2019 and provides services across Asia.

If you're looking to buy AMTD stock from Australia, you can do so from an online trading platform with access to the US market (see below). Bearing in mind this is an incredibly volatile situation and the risks of buying in a high.

Why is HKD stock soaring?

It's not clear.

Some media commentators are comparing the stock to GameStop (GME), which saw its price surge in early 2021 thanks to hype from Reddit users on trade forum Wallstreetbets. However there's not a lot of proof that redditors or users on other social sites are the cause here, with most posts on r/wallstreetbets appearing only after the stock price surge.

There also aren't any big announcements or news to help explain HKD's price volatility. In a statement by AMTD Digital, it said it had no knowledge of any significant events since its IPO but that it was monitoring the situation.

Well, we're also monitoring the situation and will update this page once we know more. Stay tuned!

Is AMTD Digital under- or over-valued?

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

AMTD Digital's P/E ratio

AMTD Digital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 113x. In other words, AMTD Digital shares trade at around 113x 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.
