Is Altice USA under- or over-valued?

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

Altice USA's P/E ratio

Altice USA's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Altice USA shares trade at around 11x 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.

Altice USA's PEG ratio

Altice USA's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.2469. 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 Altice USA'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 Altice USA shares

There are currently 36.9 million Altice USA shares held short by investors – that's known as Altice USA's "short interest". This figure is 9.3% up from 33.8 million last month.

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

Altice USA's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Altice USA's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Altice USA shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Altice USA shares traded daily (recently around 8.5 million). Altice USA's SIR currently stands at 4.36. In other words for every 100,000 Altice USA shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4360 shares are currently held short.

However Altice USA's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Altice USA shares, or, against the total number of tradable Altice USA shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Altice USA's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Altice USA shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1704% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Altice USA shares, roughly 170 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 Altice USA.
