Is Blue Bird stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Blue Bird's PEG ratio

Blue Bird's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.13. 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 Blue Bird's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

BLBD.US volatility(beta: 1.12)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Blue Bird's is 1.1235. This would suggest that Blue Bird'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).
