Is Citi Trends under- or over-valued?

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

Citi Trends's P/E ratio

Citi Trends's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Citi Trends shares trade at around 10x 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.

Citi Trends's PEG ratio

Citi Trends's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.08. 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 Citi Trends's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Citi Trends's EBITDA

Citi Trends's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $107.5 million.

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

Shorting Citi Trends shares

There are currently 1.9 million Citi Trends shares held short by investors – that's known as Citi Trends's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% down from 1.9 million last month.

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

Citi Trends's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Citi Trends's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Citi Trends shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Citi Trends shares traded daily (recently around 213308.93854749). Citi Trends's SIR currently stands at 8.95. In other words for every 100,000 Citi Trends shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8950 shares are currently held short.

However Citi Trends's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Citi Trends shares, or, against the total number of tradable Citi Trends shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Citi Trends's short interest could be expressed as 0.21% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Citi Trends shares in existence, roughly 210 shares are currently held short) or 0.2518% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Citi Trends shares, roughly 252 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 Citi Trends.

This would suggest that Citi Trends's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
