Is Stericycle stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Stericycle stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Stericycle's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Stericycle's P/E ratio
Stericycle's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 755x. In other words, Stericycle shares trade at around 755x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Stericycle's PEG ratio
Stericycle's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9525. 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 Stericycle's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Stericycle's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $406.4 million.

Stericycle share dividends
We're not expecting Stericycle to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Stericycle's shares ever split?
Stericycle's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 May 2007. 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 Stericycle shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stericycle shares which in turn could have impacted Stericycle's share price.
Stericycle share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Stericycle's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.63 up to $60.35. 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 Stericycle's is 1.2675. This would suggest that Stericycle's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
