Is AutoZone under- or over-valued?
Valuing AutoZone stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AutoZone's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AutoZone's P/E ratio
AutoZone's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, AutoZone shares trade at around 18x 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.
AutoZone's PEG ratio
AutoZone's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3222. 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 AutoZone's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
AutoZone's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a AutoZone's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting AutoZone shares
There are currently 390,843 AutoZone shares held short by investors – that's known as AutoZone's "short interest". This figure is 17.7% down from 474,991 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AutoZone shares can be evaluated.
AutoZone's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
AutoZone's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AutoZone shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AutoZone shares traded daily (recently around 184359.90566038). AutoZone's SIR currently stands at 2.12. In other words for every 100,000 AutoZone shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2120 shares are currently held short.
However AutoZone's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AutoZone shares, or, against the total number of tradable AutoZone shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AutoZone's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AutoZone shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0182% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AutoZone shares, roughly 18 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 AutoZone.
