Is Bristow Group under- or over-valued?

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

Bristow Group's P/E ratio

Bristow 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 11x. In other words, Bristow Group shares trade at around 11x 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.

Bristow Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $146.2 million.

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

Shorting Bristow Group shares

There are currently 371,879 Bristow Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Bristow Group's "short interest". This figure is 14.6% down from 435,367 last month.

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

Bristow Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bristow Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bristow Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bristow Group shares traded daily (recently around 207753.63128492). Bristow Group's SIR currently stands at 1.79. In other words for every 100,000 Bristow Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1790 shares are currently held short.

However Bristow Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bristow Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bristow Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bristow Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bristow Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0166% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bristow Group shares, roughly 17 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 Bristow Group.

Have Bristow Group's shares ever split?

Bristow Group's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 11 June 2020. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Bristow Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bristow Group shares which in turn could have impacted Bristow Group's share price.

Bristow Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bristow Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.72 up to $30.82. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VTOL.US volatility(beta: 1.9)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 Bristow Group's is 1.8958. This would suggest that Bristow 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).
