Is Americas Car-Mart under- or over-valued?

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 Americas Car-Mart's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Americas Car-Mart shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Americas Car-Mart shares which in turn could have impacted Americas Car-Mart's share price.
