Is Chart Industries under- or over-valued?

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

Chart Industries's P/E ratio

Chart Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Chart Industries shares trade at around 19x 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.

Chart Industries's PEG ratio

Chart Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.65. 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 Chart Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Chart Industries's EBITDA

Chart Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $213.8 million.

Shorting Chart Industries shares

There are currently 4.1 million Chart Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Chart Industries's "short interest". This figure is 8.1% up from 3.8 million last month.

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

Chart Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Chart Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chart Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chart Industries shares traded daily (recently around 306349.70414201). Chart Industries's SIR currently stands at 13.52. In other words for every 100,000 Chart Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13520 shares are currently held short.

However Chart Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chart Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chart Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chart Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chart Industries shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1342% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chart Industries shares, roughly 134 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Chart Industries.

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Chart Industries's is 1.8207. This would suggest that Chart Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
