Is Americas Car-Mart under- or over-valued?

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

Americas Car-Mart's P/E ratio

Americas Car-Mart's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Americas Car-Mart shares trade at around 7x 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.

Americas Car-Mart's PEG ratio

Americas Car-Mart's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.58. 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 Americas Car-Mart'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 Americas Car-Mart shares

There are currently 262,937 Americas Car-Mart shares held short by investors – that's known as Americas Car-Mart's "short interest". This figure is 4% up from 252,771 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Americas Car-Mart shares can be evaluated.

Americas Car-Mart's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Americas Car-Mart's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Americas Car-Mart shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Americas Car-Mart shares traded daily (recently around 46702.841918295). Americas Car-Mart's SIR currently stands at 5.63. In other words for every 100,000 Americas Car-Mart shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5630 shares are currently held short.

However Americas Car-Mart's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Americas Car-Mart shares, or, against the total number of tradable Americas Car-Mart shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Americas Car-Mart's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Americas Car-Mart shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0432% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Americas Car-Mart shares, roughly 43 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Americas Car-Mart.

We're not expecting Americas Car-Mart to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Americas Car-Mart's shares ever split?

Americas Car-Mart's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 14 April 2005. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Americas Car-Mart shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Americas Car-Mart shares which in turn could have impacted Americas Car-Mart's share price.

Americas Car-Mart share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Americas Car-Mart's shares have ranged in value from as little as $82.72 up to $177.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CRMT.US volatility(beta: 1.4)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Americas Car-Mart's is 1.3989. This would suggest that Americas Car-Mart's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
