Is Covenant Transportation Group under- or over-valued?

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

Covenant Transportation Group's P/E ratio

Covenant Transportation Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 147x. In other words, Covenant Transportation Group shares trade at around 147x 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.

Covenant Transportation Group's PEG ratio

Covenant Transportation Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.39. 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 Covenant Transportation Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Covenant Transportation Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Covenant Transportation Group's SIR currently stands at 1.86. In other words for every 100,000 Covenant Transportation Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1860 shares are currently held short.

However Covenant Transportation Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Covenant Transportation Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Covenant Transportation Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Covenant Transportation Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Covenant Transportation Group shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.044% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Covenant Transportation Group shares, roughly 44 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 Covenant Transportation Group.
