Is Cushman-and-Wakefield under- or over-valued?

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

Cushman-and-Wakefield's P/E ratio

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 Cushman-and-Wakefield shares

There are currently 6.8 million Cushman-and-Wakefield shares held short by investors – that's known as Cushman-and-Wakefield's "short interest". This figure is 4.8% up from 6.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cushman-and-Wakefield shares can be evaluated.

Cushman-and-Wakefield's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cushman-and-Wakefield's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cushman-and-Wakefield shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cushman-and-Wakefield shares traded daily (recently around 662220.41015625). Cushman-and-Wakefield's SIR currently stands at 10.24. In other words for every 100,000 Cushman-and-Wakefield shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10240 shares are currently held short.

However Cushman-and-Wakefield's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cushman-and-Wakefield shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cushman-and-Wakefield shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cushman-and-Wakefield's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cushman-and-Wakefield shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0541% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cushman-and-Wakefield shares, roughly 54 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 Cushman-and-Wakefield.

Cushman-and-Wakefield share price volatility

CWK.US volatility(beta: 1.52)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Cushman-and-Wakefield's is 1.5227. This would suggest that Cushman-and-Wakefield's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
