Is Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT under- or over-valued?

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

Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT's P/E ratio

Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares trade at around 8x 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 Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares

There are currently 399,323 Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares held short by investors – that's known as Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT's "short interest". This figure is 24.2% up from 321,448 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares can be evaluated.

Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares traded daily (recently around 81163.211382114). Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT's SIR currently stands at 4.92. In other words for every 100,000 Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4920 shares are currently held short.

However Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0458% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares, roughly 46 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 Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT.

In Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT's case, that would currently equate to about $1.12 per share.

Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
