Is Consumer Portfolio Services under- or over-valued?
Valuing Consumer Portfolio Services stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Consumer Portfolio Services's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Consumer Portfolio Services's P/E ratio
Consumer Portfolio Services's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Consumer Portfolio Services shares trade at around 8x 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.
Consumer Portfolio Services's PEG ratio
Consumer Portfolio Services's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.33. 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 Consumer Portfolio Services's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Have Consumer Portfolio Services's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Consumer Portfolio Services shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Consumer Portfolio Services shares which in turn could have impacted Consumer Portfolio Services's share price.
Consumer Portfolio Services share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Consumer Portfolio Services's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.8 up to $12.66. 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 Consumer Portfolio Services's is 2.479. This would suggest that Consumer Portfolio Services's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
