Is BJs Wholesale Club under- or over-valued?

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

BJs Wholesale Club's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, BJs Wholesale Club shares trade at around 15x 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.

BJs Wholesale Club's PEG ratio

BJs Wholesale Club's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2991. 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 BJs Wholesale Club's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting BJs Wholesale Club shares

There are currently 15.3 million BJs Wholesale Club shares held short by investors – that's known as BJs Wholesale Club's "short interest". This figure is 13.1% down from 17.6 million last month.

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

BJs Wholesale Club's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BJs Wholesale Club's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BJs Wholesale Club shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BJs Wholesale Club shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). BJs Wholesale Club's SIR currently stands at 6.37. In other words for every 100,000 BJs Wholesale Club shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6370 shares are currently held short.

However BJs Wholesale Club's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BJs Wholesale Club shares, or, against the total number of tradable BJs Wholesale Club shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BJs Wholesale Club's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BJs Wholesale Club shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1344% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BJs Wholesale Club shares, roughly 134 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 BJs Wholesale Club.
