Is SEI Investments Company under- or over-valued?
Valuing SEI Investments Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SEI Investments Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

SEI Investments Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, SEI Investments Company shares trade at around 18x 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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into SEI Investments Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against SEI Investments Company.

Have SEI Investments Company's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SEI Investments Company shares which in turn could have impacted SEI Investments Company's share price.
SEI Investments Company share price volatility
