Is GameStop under- or over-valued?
Valuing GameStop stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of GameStop's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
GameStop's PEG ratio
GameStop's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.86. 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 GameStop's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
GameStop's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $111.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a GameStop's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$6 billion|

Have GameStop's shares ever split?
GameStop's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 March 2007. 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 GameStop shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for GameStop shares which in turn could have impacted GameStop's share price.
GameStop share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, GameStop's shares have ranged in value from as little as $77.58 up to $344.66. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while GameStop's is -1.008. This would suggest that GameStop's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, GameStop has bucked the trend.
