Is Dollar Tree stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Dollar Tree stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Dollar Tree's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Dollar Tree's P/E ratio
Dollar Tree's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Dollar Tree shares trade at around 19x 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.
Dollar Tree's PEG ratio
Dollar Tree's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.064. 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 Dollar Tree's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Dollar Tree's EBITDA
Dollar Tree's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Dollar Tree's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Have Dollar Tree's shares ever split?
Dollar Tree's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 June 2012. 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 Dollar Tree shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dollar Tree shares which in turn could have impacted Dollar Tree's share price.
Dollar Tree share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Dollar Tree's shares have ranged in value from as little as $124.7601 up to $177.19. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Dollar Tree's is 0.6819. This would suggest that Dollar Tree's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
