Valuation PercentageView Financial Glossary Index
Click the "Learn More" link below to see how the valuation percentage is calculated.
The valuation percentage shows how far above or below its current price the stocks historical valuation is. It takes into account a long-term average of the Price to Sales Ratio and Price to Earnings Ratio and mathematically determines whether the current price is high or low relative to those historic valuation multiples.
A negative value indicates the current price is above the historical valuation while a positive value indicates it is currently trading at a discount to the historical valuation.
It is important to note that this is not a measurement of how the stock's price relates to its "intrinsic value", but is instead a measurement of how the market is valuing the stock relative to how it was valued historically.
Valuation Percentage = [Valuation (Historical Mult.) - Current Stock Price] / Valuation (Historical Mult.)
