Is Knight Transportation stock undervalued or overvalued?

Knight Transportation's P/E ratio
Knight Transportation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Knight Transportation shares trade at around 10x 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.
Knight Transportation's PEG ratio
Knight Transportation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.4263. 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 Knight Transportation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Knight Transportation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 8.51% of net profits
Recently Knight Transportation has paid out, on average, around 8.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Knight Transportation shareholders could enjoy a 0.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Knight Transportation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.46 per share.
While Knight Transportation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Knight Transportation is investing more in its future growth.
Knight Transportation's most recent dividend payout was on 27 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Knight Transportation's shares ever split?
Knight Transportation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 27 December 2005. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Knight Transportation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Knight Transportation shares which in turn could have impacted Knight Transportation's share price.
Knight Transportation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Knight Transportation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $42.2023 up to $58.72. 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 Knight Transportation's is 1.1503. This would suggest that Knight Transportation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
