Is AMC Networks under- or over-valued?
Valuing AMC Networks stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AMC Networks's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AMC Networks's P/E ratio
AMC Networks's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, AMC Networks shares trade at around 10x 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.
AMC Networks's PEG ratio
AMC Networks's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7554. 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 AMC Networks'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 AMC Networks shares
There are currently 5.5 million AMC Networks shares held short by investors – that's known as AMC Networks's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% up from 5.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AMC Networks shares can be evaluated.
AMC Networks's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
AMC Networks's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AMC Networks shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AMC Networks shares traded daily (recently around 356531.82989691). AMC Networks's SIR currently stands at 15.52. In other words for every 100,000 AMC Networks shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15520 shares are currently held short.
However AMC Networks's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AMC Networks shares, or, against the total number of tradable AMC Networks shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AMC Networks's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AMC Networks shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1878% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AMC Networks shares, roughly 188 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against AMC Networks.
