Is Big Lots stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Big Lots's PEG ratio

Big Lots's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.88. 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 Big Lots's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Big Lots share dividends

We're not expecting Big Lots to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Big Lots's shares ever split?

Big Lots's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 24 June 1997. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Big Lots shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Big Lots shares which in turn could have impacted Big Lots's share price.

Big Lots share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Big Lots's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.78 up to $20.071. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BIG.US volatility(beta: 2.27)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 Big Lots's is 2.2673. This would suggest that Big Lots's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
