Is Star Equity under- or over-valued?

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

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 Star Equity shares

There are currently 131,541 Star Equity shares held short by investors – that's known as Star Equity's "short interest". This figure is 21.1% down from 166,713 last month.

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

Star Equity's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Star Equity's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Star Equity shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Star Equity shares traded daily (recently around 526164). Star Equity's SIR currently stands at 0.25. In other words for every 100,000 Star Equity shares traded daily on the market, roughly 250 shares are currently held short.

However Star Equity's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Star Equity shares, or, against the total number of tradable Star Equity shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Star Equity's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Star Equity shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0284% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Star Equity shares, roughly 28 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 Star Equity.
