Is PRA Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing PRA Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PRA Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
PRA Group's P/E ratio
PRA Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, PRA Group shares trade at around 13x 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.
PRA Group's PEG ratio
PRA Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.4362. 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 PRA Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
PRA Group's EBITDA
PRA Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $399.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a PRA Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

PRA Group share dividends
We're not expecting PRA Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have PRA Group's shares ever split?
PRA Group's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 1 August 2013. So if you had owned 1 share 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 PRA Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PRA Group shares which in turn could have impacted PRA Group's share price.
PRA Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, PRA Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32.78 up to $51. 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 PRA Group's is 1.3441. This would suggest that PRA Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
