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 7x. In other words, Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares trade at around 7x recent earnings.

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

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 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0314% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT shares, roughly 31 shares are currently held short).
