Is Crescent Acquisition under- or over-valued?

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

Crescent Acquisition's P/E ratio

Crescent Acquisition's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 779x. In other words, Crescent Acquisition shares trade at around 779x 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.

Shorting Crescent Acquisition shares

There are currently 301,181 Crescent Acquisition shares held short by investors – that's known as Crescent Acquisition's "short interest". This figure is 4.6% down from 315,599 last month.

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

Crescent Acquisition's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Crescent Acquisition's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Crescent Acquisition shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Crescent Acquisition shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Crescent Acquisition's SIR currently stands at 0.19. In other words for every 100,000 Crescent Acquisition shares traded daily on the market, roughly 190 shares are currently held short.

However Crescent Acquisition's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Crescent Acquisition shares, or, against the total number of tradable Crescent Acquisition shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Crescent Acquisition's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Crescent Acquisition shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.014% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Crescent Acquisition shares, roughly 14 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 Crescent Acquisition.
