Is Nextgen Healthcare stock undervalued or overvalued?

Have Nextgen Healthcare's shares ever split?

Nextgen Healthcare's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 October 2011. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nextgen Healthcare shares which in turn could have impacted Nextgen Healthcare's share price.
