Is Golden Entertainment under- or over-valued?

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

Golden Entertainment's P/E ratio

Golden Entertainment's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Golden Entertainment shares trade at around 16x 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.

Golden Entertainment's PEG ratio

Golden Entertainment's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.12. 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 Golden Entertainment's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Golden Entertainment's EBITDA

Golden Entertainment's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $216.7 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Golden Entertainment's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Golden Entertainment shares

There are currently 1.1 million Golden Entertainment shares held short by investors – that's known as Golden Entertainment's "short interest". This figure is 2.3% up from 1.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Golden Entertainment shares can be evaluated.

Golden Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Golden Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Golden Entertainment shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Golden Entertainment shares traded daily (recently around 241089.55555556). Golden Entertainment's SIR currently stands at 4.5. In other words for every 100,000 Golden Entertainment shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4500 shares are currently held short.

However Golden Entertainment's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Golden Entertainment shares, or, against the total number of tradable Golden Entertainment shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Golden Entertainment's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Golden Entertainment shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0559% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Golden Entertainment shares, roughly 56 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 Golden Entertainment.

Have Golden Entertainment's shares ever split?

Golden Entertainment's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 9 September 2014. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Golden Entertainment shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Golden Entertainment shares which in turn could have impacted Golden Entertainment's share price.

Golden Entertainment share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Golden Entertainment's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.3 up to $54.74. 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 Golden Entertainment's is 2.8085. This would suggest that Golden Entertainment's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
