Is Chuys under- or over-valued?

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

Chuys's P/E ratio

Chuys's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 40x. In other words, Chuys shares trade at around 40x 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.

Chuys's PEG ratio

Chuys's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4. 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 Chuys's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Chuys's EBITDA

Chuys's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$35.9 million.

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

Shorting Chuys shares

There are currently 1.5 million Chuys shares held short by investors – that's known as Chuys's "short interest". This figure is 5% up from 1.5 million last month.

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

Chuys's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Chuys's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chuys shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chuys shares traded daily (recently around 99275.177763413). Chuys's SIR currently stands at 15.47. In other words for every 100,000 Chuys shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15470 shares are currently held short.

However Chuys's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chuys shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chuys shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chuys's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chuys shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1255% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chuys shares, roughly 126 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 Chuys.
