Is Associated Capital Group under- or over-valued?

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

Associated Capital Group's P/E ratio

Associated Capital 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 21x. In other words, Associated Capital Group shares trade at around 21x 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.

Shorting Associated Capital Group shares

There are currently 51,588 Associated Capital Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Associated Capital Group's "short interest". This figure is 8.3% down from 56,264 last month.

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

Associated Capital Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Associated Capital Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Associated Capital Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Associated Capital Group shares traded daily (recently around 6571.7197452229). Associated Capital Group's SIR currently stands at 7.85. In other words for every 100,000 Associated Capital Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7850 shares are currently held short.

However Associated Capital Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Associated Capital Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Associated Capital Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Associated Capital Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Associated Capital Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0292% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Associated Capital Group shares, roughly 29 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 Associated Capital Group.

Have Associated Capital Group's shares ever split?

Associated Capital Group's shares were split on a 1005:1000 basis on 29 July 2020. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1005 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Associated Capital Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Associated Capital Group shares which in turn could have impacted Associated Capital Group's share price.

Associated Capital Group share price volatility

AC.US volatility(beta: 1.33)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Associated Capital Group's is 1.3255. This would suggest that Associated Capital Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
