Is Biglari under- or over-valued?

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

Biglari's P/E ratio

Biglari's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2x. In other words, Biglari shares trade at around 2x 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.

Biglari's EBITDA

Biglari's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$76.9 million.

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

Shorting Biglari shares

There are currently 40,885 Biglari shares held short by investors – that's known as Biglari's "short interest". This figure is 9.1% down from 44,987 last month.

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

Biglari's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Biglari's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Biglari shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Biglari shares traded daily (recently around 7223.4982332155). Biglari's SIR currently stands at 5.66. In other words for every 100,000 Biglari shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5660 shares are currently held short.

However Biglari's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Biglari shares, or, against the total number of tradable Biglari shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Biglari's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Biglari shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0436% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Biglari shares, roughly 44 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 Biglari.
