Is Golden Entertainment stock undervalued or overvalued?
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 11x. In other words, Golden Entertainment shares trade at around 11x 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 shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 10 September 2014. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share.

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.
