Is AGNC Investment under- or over-valued?

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

AGNC Investment's P/E ratio

AGNC Investment's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, AGNC Investment shares trade at around 5x 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.

AGNC Investment's PEG ratio

AGNC Investment's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 17.55. 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 AGNC Investment's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting AGNC Investment shares

There are currently 15.3 million AGNC Investment shares held short by investors – that's known as AGNC Investment's "short interest". This figure is 14.8% up from 13.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AGNC Investment shares can be evaluated.

AGNC Investment's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AGNC Investment's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AGNC Investment shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AGNC Investment shares traded daily (recently around 4.9 million). AGNC Investment's SIR currently stands at 3.13. In other words for every 100,000 AGNC Investment shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3130 shares are currently held short.

However AGNC Investment's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AGNC Investment shares, or, against the total number of tradable AGNC Investment shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AGNC Investment's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AGNC Investment shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0295% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AGNC Investment shares, roughly 30 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against AGNC Investment.

In AGNC Investment's case, that would currently equate to about $1.44 per share.

While AGNC Investment's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that AGNC Investment is investing more in its future growth.
