Over the past month, the stock fell by 6.02%, but over the past year, it actually spiked by 119.69%. With questionable short-term performance like this, and great long-term performance, long-term shareholders might want to start looking into the company's price-to-earnings ratio. Assuming that all other factors are held constant, this could present itself as an opportunity for shareholders trying to capitalize on the higher share price. The stock is currently below from its 52 week high by 27.67%. The P/E ratio measures the current share price to the company's earnings per share. It is used by long-term investors to analyze the company's current performance against its past earnings, historical data and aggregate market data for the industry or the indices, such as S&P 500. A higher P/E indicates that investors expect the company to perform better in the future, and the stock is probably overvalued, but not necessarily. It also shows that investors are willing to pay a higher share price currently, because they expect the company to perform better in the upcoming quarters. This leads investors to also remain optimistic about rising dividends in the future.

Big 5 earned $28.4 million, or $1.31 a share, in the quarter, compared with $6.4 million, or 30 cents a share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Sales rose to $305 million, compared with $266 million a year ago. Same-store sales rose 15% for the quarter, the company said. FactSet consensus called for sales of $313 million in the quarter. There was no consensus for GAAP EPS available on FactSet. "I am pleased to report an exceptional third quarter, which represents the strongest sales and earnings performance in our 65-year history," Chief Executive Steven G. Miller said in a statement. The retailer's products resonated "with consumers who are looking for ways to stay healthy and active." The company ended the quarter with no borrowings and nearly $56 million in cash, it said. As a result, its board authorized a dividend increase to 10 cents a share from 5 cents a share, payable Dec. 15 to stockholders of record as of Dec. 1, it said.
