Is Norwegian Cruise Line under- or over-valued?
Valuing Norwegian Cruise Line stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Norwegian Cruise Line's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Norwegian Cruise Line's PEG ratio
Norwegian Cruise Line's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9247. 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 Norwegian Cruise Line's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Norwegian Cruise Line's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.
Norwegian Cruise Line share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Norwegian Cruise Line's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$11.76 up to US$22.75. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
