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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Boyd Gaming Corporation shares trade at around 22x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
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 (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$459.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Boyd Gaming Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.5 million Boyd Gaming Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Boyd Gaming Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% down from 5.6 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) 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 3.53. In other words for every 100,000 Boyd Gaming Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3530 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 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Boyd Gaming Corporation shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0684% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Boyd Gaming Corporation shares, roughly 68 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.

Dividend payout ratio: 25.61% of net profits
Recently Boyd Gaming Corporation has paid out, on average, around 25.61% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.66% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Boyd Gaming Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Boyd Gaming Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.28 per share.
While Boyd Gaming Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Boyd Gaming Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Boyd Gaming Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 January 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 December 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Boyd Gaming Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.44 up to $36.22. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Boyd Gaming Corporation's is 2.3034. This would suggest that Boyd Gaming Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
