Is Apria under- or over-valued?

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

Apria's P/E ratio

Apria's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, Apria shares trade at around 23x 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.

However, Apria's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the medical instruments & supplies industry or those of similar companies.

Apria's EBITDA

Apria's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $223.2 million.

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

Shorting Apria shares

There are currently 958,790 Apria shares held short by investors – that's known as Apria's "short interest". This figure is 20.9% down from 1.2 million last month.

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

Apria's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Apria's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Apria shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Apria shares traded daily (recently around 356427.50929368). Apria's SIR currently stands at 2.69. In other words for every 100,000 Apria shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2690 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Apria's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Apria's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Apria shares, or, against the total number of tradable Apria shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Apria's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Apria shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0643% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Apria shares, roughly 64 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 Apria.
