Is Builders FirstSource under- or over-valued?

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

Builders FirstSource's P/E ratio

Builders FirstSource'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, Builders FirstSource 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.

Builders FirstSource's PEG ratio

Builders FirstSource's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.81. 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 Builders FirstSource'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 Builders FirstSource shares

There are currently 14.1 million Builders FirstSource shares held short by investors – that's known as Builders FirstSource's "short interest". This figure is 16.8% up from 12.1 million last month.

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

Builders FirstSource's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Builders FirstSource's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Builders FirstSource shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Builders FirstSource shares traded daily (recently around 2.9 million). Builders FirstSource's SIR currently stands at 4.94. In other words for every 100,000 Builders FirstSource shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4940 shares are currently held short.

However Builders FirstSource's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Builders FirstSource shares, or, against the total number of tradable Builders FirstSource shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Builders FirstSource's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Builders FirstSource shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0524% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Builders FirstSource shares, roughly 52 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 Builders FirstSource.

Have Builders FirstSource's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Builders FirstSource shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 8.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Builders FirstSource shares which in turn could have impacted Builders FirstSource's share price.

Builders FirstSource share price volatility
