Is Ameresco under- or over-valued?

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

Ameresco's P/E ratio

Ameresco's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 47x. In other words, Ameresco shares trade at around 47x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Ameresco's PEG ratio

Ameresco's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.8523. 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 Ameresco's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ameresco's EBITDA

Ameresco's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $133 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Ameresco's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Ameresco shares

There are currently 1.1 million Ameresco shares held short by investors – that's known as Ameresco's "short interest". This figure is 19.8% up from 935,728 last month.

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

Ameresco's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ameresco's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ameresco shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ameresco shares traded daily (recently around 350397.8125). Ameresco's SIR currently stands at 3.2. In other words for every 100,000 Ameresco shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3200 shares are currently held short.

However Ameresco's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ameresco shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ameresco shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ameresco's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ameresco shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0383% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ameresco shares, roughly 38 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 Ameresco.

Have Ameresco's shares ever split?

Ameresco's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 July 2010. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ameresco shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ameresco shares which in turn could have impacted Ameresco's share price.

Ameresco share price volatility
