Is Geo Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Geo Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Geo Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Geo Group's P/E ratio
Geo 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 15x. In other words, Geo Group shares trade at around 15x 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.
Geo Group's PEG ratio
Geo Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6279. 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 Geo 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.
Geo Group's EBITDA
Geo Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $463.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Geo Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Have Geo Group's shares ever split?
Geo Group's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 25 April 2017. So if you had owned 2 shares 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 Geo Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Geo Group shares which in turn could have impacted Geo Group's share price.
Geo Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Geo Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.205 up to $9.805. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Geo Group's is 0.5158. This would suggest that Geo Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
