Is Asbury Automotive Group under- or over-valued?

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

Asbury Automotive Group's P/E ratio

Asbury Automotive Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Asbury Automotive Group shares trade at around 9x 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.

Asbury Automotive Group's PEG ratio

Asbury Automotive Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3693. 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 Asbury Automotive Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Asbury Automotive Group's EBITDA

Asbury Automotive Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $645.4 million.

Shorting Asbury Automotive Group shares

There are currently 1.5 million Asbury Automotive Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Asbury Automotive Group's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% up from 1.4 million last month.

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

Asbury Automotive Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Asbury Automotive Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Asbury Automotive Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Asbury Automotive Group shares traded daily (recently around 163688.31312018). Asbury Automotive Group's SIR currently stands at 9.07. In other words for every 100,000 Asbury Automotive Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9070 shares are currently held short.

However Asbury Automotive Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Asbury Automotive Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Asbury Automotive Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Asbury Automotive Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Asbury Automotive Group shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0923% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Asbury Automotive Group shares, roughly 92 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 Asbury Automotive Group.

Have Asbury Automotive Group's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Asbury Automotive Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Asbury Automotive Group shares which in turn could have impacted Asbury Automotive Group's share price.
