What’s going on with GameStop stock?

GameStop’s stock skyrocketed in late January 2021 after users of the Reddit board wallstreetbets began hyping it and lambasting hedge funds that shorted it. The wild moves led some brokers to restrict trading in the stock, contributing to a sharp drop. Since then, the stock has been very volatile but has not regained the January high.

Is GameStop stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

GameStop's PEG ratio

GameStop's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.86. 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 GameStop's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

GameStop share dividends

We're not expecting GameStop to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have GameStop's shares ever split?

GameStop's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 21 July 2022. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your GameStop shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for GameStop shares which in turn could have impacted GameStop's share price.

GameStop share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, GameStop's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.41 up to $49.8525. 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 GameStop's is -0.0725. This would suggest that GameStop's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, GameStop has bucked the trend.
