Yeah. It's the quick and dirty equation. In practice, the gain will be slightly lower than Rload/Rcathode as the gain of the tube isn't anywhere near infinite.

I tend to take an intuitive approach to circuit design. I make a couple of quick back-of-the-envelope calculations to get started and throw it into a simulator for the finer detail. I follow that up with the final optimization in the lab. For most work, the quick & easy equations get you close enough.
