Is Copart under- or over-valued?
Valuing Copart stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Copart's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Copart's P/E ratio
Copart's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, Copart shares trade at around 31x 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.
Copart's PEG ratio
Copart's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.14. 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 Copart'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 Copart's shares ever split?
Copart's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 April 2017. 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 Copart shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Copart shares which in turn could have impacted Copart's share price.
