Is Drive Shack under- or over-valued?

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

Drive Shack's PEG ratio

Drive Shack's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.18. 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.

Shorting Drive Shack shares

There are currently 2.1 million Drive Shack shares held short by investors – that's known as Drive Shack's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% up from 2.1 million last month.

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

Drive Shack's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Drive Shack's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Drive Shack shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Drive Shack shares traded daily (recently around 821962.3015873). Drive Shack's SIR currently stands at 2.52. In other words for every 100,000 Drive Shack shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2520 shares are currently held short.

However Drive Shack's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Drive Shack shares, or, against the total number of tradable Drive Shack shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Drive Shack's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Drive Shack shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0358% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Drive Shack shares, roughly 36 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 Drive Shack.

We're not expecting Drive Shack to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Drive Shack's shares ever split?

Drive Shack's shares were split on a 5575:1000 basis on 7 November 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5575 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Drive Shack shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 82.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Drive Shack shares which in turn could have impacted Drive Shack's share price.

Drive Shack share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Drive Shack's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1 up to $4.42. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DS.US volatility(beta: 1.56)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 Drive Shack's is 1.5609. This would suggest that Drive Shack's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
