Is Scientific Games Corporation under- or over-valued?

Valuing Scientific Games Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Scientific Games Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.
