Is Cronos Group under- or over-valued?

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

Cronos Group's P/E ratio

Cronos 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 3x. In other words, Cronos Group shares trade at around 3x 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.

Shorting Cronos Group shares

There are currently 48.9 million Cronos Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Cronos Group's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% down from 49.5 million last month.

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

Cronos Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cronos Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cronos Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cronos Group shares traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). Cronos Group's SIR currently stands at 19.17. In other words for every 100,000 Cronos Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 19170 shares are currently held short.

However Cronos Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cronos Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cronos Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cronos Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cronos Group shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.2707% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cronos Group shares, roughly 271 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Cronos Group.

Cronos Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cronos Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.43 up to $9.19. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CRON.US volatility(beta: 1.75)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 Cronos Group's is 1.7539. This would suggest that Cronos Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
