Have Geo Group's shares ever split?

Geo Group's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 24 April 2017. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Geo Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Geo Group shares which in turn could have impacted Geo Group's share price.

Is it a good time to buy Geo Group stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. However, this is not a recommendation. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Geo Group under- or over-valued?

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

Geo Group's P/E ratio

Geo Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Geo Group shares trade at around 20x 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.

Geo Group's PEG ratio

Geo Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4779. 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 Geo Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Geo Group's EBITDA

Geo Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$465.3 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Geo Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Geo Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Geo Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$6.94 up to US$16.31. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GEO.US volatility(beta: 0.58)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Geo Group's is 0.575. This would suggest that Geo Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
