Is Take-Two stock undervalued?
Take-Two (TTWO) stock has gained just 2.0% in 2019 and is up 8.5% since the start of May 2019. Does the recent upward rally provide an opportunity for investors to enter this stock, or will it undergo a correction?
TTWO stock is trading at a forward PE multiple of 21.05x. In comparison, its EPS are expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate of 16.3% in the next five years, indicating that its shares are a bit expensive considering its PE.
TTWO’s estimated five-year PEG (PE-to-growth) multiple is 1.4x. A PEG multiple of below 1 suggests that a stock is undervalued. However, all this could drastically change if Take-Two releases Grand Theft Auto 6 by next year.
This year, Take-Two’s overall sales will be driven by sales of Red Dead Redemption 2. The game sold 23 million units within the first three days of its launch and achieved the biggest opening weekend in entertainment history with sales of $725 million.
