Is Constellium under- or over-valued?

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

Constellium's P/E ratio

Constellium's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Constellium shares trade at around 11x 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.

Constellium's PEG ratio

Constellium's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.06. 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 Constellium's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Constellium shares

There are currently 1.0 million Constellium shares held short by investors – that's known as Constellium's "short interest". This figure is 6% down from 1.1 million last month.

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

Constellium's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Constellium's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Constellium shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Constellium shares traded daily (recently around 824103.1496063). Constellium's SIR currently stands at 1.27. In other words for every 100,000 Constellium shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1270 shares are currently held short.

However Constellium's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Constellium shares, or, against the total number of tradable Constellium shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Constellium's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Constellium shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0086% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Constellium shares, roughly 9 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 Constellium.

Constellium share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Constellium's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4 up to $17.08. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Constellium's is 2.6127. This would suggest that Constellium's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
