Is Conifer under- or over-valued?

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

Conifer's P/E ratio

Conifer's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 61x. In other words, Conifer shares trade at around 61x 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.

Conifer's EBITDA

Conifer's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.9 million.

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

Shorting Conifer shares

There are currently 2,054 Conifer shares held short by investors – that's known as Conifer's "short interest". This figure is 59.8% down from 5,106 last month.

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

Conifer's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Conifer's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Conifer shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Conifer shares traded daily (recently around 29342.857142857). Conifer's SIR currently stands at 0.07. In other words for every 100,000 Conifer shares traded daily on the market, roughly 70 shares are currently held short.

However Conifer's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Conifer shares, or, against the total number of tradable Conifer shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Conifer's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Conifer shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0008% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Conifer shares, roughly 1 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 Conifer.

CNFR.US volatility(beta: 1.18)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 Conifer's is 1.1804.
