Is Clean Harbors stock undervalued or overvalued?

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.

Have Clean Harbors's shares ever split?

Clean Harbors's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 July 2011. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Clean Harbors shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Clean Harbors shares which in turn could have impacted Clean Harbors's share price.

Clean Harbors share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Clean Harbors's shares have ranged in value from as little as $81.56 up to $124.49. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CLH.US volatility(beta: 1.43)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 Clean Harbors's is 1.4323. This would suggest that Clean Harbors's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
