Is Cardtronics under- or over-valued?

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

Cardtronics's P/E ratio

Cardtronics's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 93x. In other words, Cardtronics shares trade at around 93x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Cardtronics's PEG ratio

Cardtronics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.5211. 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 Cardtronics's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Cardtronics's EBITDA

Cardtronics's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $241.3 million.

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

Shorting Cardtronics shares

There are currently 2.7 million Cardtronics shares held short by investors – that's known as Cardtronics's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% up from 2.6 million last month.

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

Cardtronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cardtronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cardtronics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cardtronics shares traded daily (recently around 387490.55232558). Cardtronics's SIR currently stands at 6.88. In other words for every 100,000 Cardtronics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6880 shares are currently held short.

However Cardtronics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cardtronics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cardtronics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cardtronics's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cardtronics shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0884% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cardtronics shares, roughly 88 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 Cardtronics.

CATM.US volatility(beta: 1.89)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Cardtronics's is 1.8913. This would suggest that Cardtronics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
