Is Boyd Gaming Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Boyd Gaming Corporation's P/E ratio

Boyd Gaming Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1068x. In other words, Boyd Gaming Corporation shares trade at around 1068x 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.

Boyd Gaming Corporation's PEG ratio

Boyd Gaming Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.85. 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 Boyd Gaming Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Boyd Gaming Corporation's EBITDA

Boyd Gaming Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $985.1 million.

Shorting Boyd Gaming Corporation shares

There are currently 2.7 million Boyd Gaming Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Boyd Gaming Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 29.9% down from 3.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Boyd Gaming Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Boyd Gaming Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Boyd Gaming Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Boyd Gaming Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Boyd Gaming Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Boyd Gaming Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.75. In other words for every 100,000 Boyd Gaming Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1750 shares are currently held short.

However Boyd Gaming Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Boyd Gaming Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Boyd Gaming Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Boyd Gaming Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Boyd Gaming Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0336% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Boyd Gaming Corporation shares, roughly 34 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Boyd Gaming Corporation.
