Is AMERCO under- or over-valued?
Valuing AMERCO stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AMERCO's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AMERCO's P/E ratio
AMERCO's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, AMERCO shares trade at around 19x 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.
AMERCO's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.6 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a AMERCO's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting AMERCO shares
There are currently 310,827 AMERCO shares held short by investors – that's known as AMERCO's "short interest". This figure is 24.9% up from 248,831 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AMERCO shares can be evaluated.
AMERCO's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
AMERCO's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AMERCO shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AMERCO shares traded daily (recently around 72964.084507042). AMERCO's SIR currently stands at 4.26. In other words for every 100,000 AMERCO shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4260 shares are currently held short.
However AMERCO's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AMERCO shares, or, against the total number of tradable AMERCO shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AMERCO's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AMERCO shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0347% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AMERCO shares, roughly 35 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 AMERCO.
