Is SP Plus stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing SP Plus stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SP Plus's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SP Plus's P/E ratio
SP Plus's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, SP Plus shares trade at around 14x 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.
SP Plus's PEG ratio
SP Plus's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.91. 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 SP Plus's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
SP Plus's EBITDA
SP Plus's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $106.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a SP Plus's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

We're not expecting SP Plus to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have SP Plus's shares ever split?
SP Plus's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 January 2008. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SP Plus shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SP Plus shares which in turn could have impacted SP Plus's share price.
SP Plus share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, SP Plus's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.29 up to $37.17. 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 SP Plus's is 1.4207. This would suggest that SP Plus's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
