Is Nicholas Financial under- or over-valued?
Valuing Nicholas Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Nicholas Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Nicholas Financial's P/E ratio
Nicholas Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Nicholas Financial shares trade at around 10x 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.

Have Nicholas Financial's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nicholas Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Nicholas Financial's share price.
Nicholas Financial share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Nicholas Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.59 up to $12.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
