Is CBRE Group under- or over-valued?

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

CBRE Group's P/E ratio

CBRE 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 14x. In other words, CBRE Group shares trade at around 14x 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.

CBRE Group's PEG ratio

CBRE Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.5923. 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 CBRE Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


CBRE Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.7 billion.

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

Shorting CBRE Group shares

There are currently 8.5 million CBRE Group shares held short by investors – that's known as CBRE Group's "short interest". This figure is 31.2% up from 6.5 million last month.

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

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

CBRE Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CBRE Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CBRE Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). CBRE Group's SIR currently stands at 4.98. In other words for every 100,000 CBRE Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4980 shares are currently held short.

However CBRE Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CBRE Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable CBRE Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CBRE Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CBRE Group shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0306% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CBRE Group shares, roughly 31 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 CBRE Group.

Have CBRE Group's shares ever split?

CBRE Group's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 2 June 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares.
