Is Credit Acceptance Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Credit Acceptance Corporation's P/E ratio

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

Credit Acceptance Corporation's PEG ratio

Credit Acceptance Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.154. 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 Credit Acceptance Corporation'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 Credit Acceptance Corporation shares

There are currently 1.3 million Credit Acceptance Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Credit Acceptance Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 21.5% down from 1.7 million last month.

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

Credit Acceptance Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Credit Acceptance Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Credit Acceptance Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Credit Acceptance Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 203487.46130031). Credit Acceptance Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.46. In other words for every 100,000 Credit Acceptance Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6460 shares are currently held short.

However Credit Acceptance Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Credit Acceptance Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Credit Acceptance Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Credit Acceptance Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Credit Acceptance Corporation shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.201% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Credit Acceptance Corporation shares, roughly 201 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 Credit Acceptance Corporation.

We're not expecting Credit Acceptance Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Credit Acceptance Corporation's shares ever split?

Credit Acceptance Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 December 1994. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Credit Acceptance Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Credit Acceptance Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Credit Acceptance Corporation's share price.

Credit Acceptance Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Credit Acceptance Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $266.7401 up to $671.12. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CACC.US volatility(beta: 1.22)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 Credit Acceptance Corporation's is 1.2217. This would suggest that Credit Acceptance Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
