Is Enel Chile S-A under- or over-valued?

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

Enel Chile S-A's P/E ratio

Enel Chile S-A's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Enel Chile S-A shares trade at around 10x 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 Enel Chile S-A shares

There are currently 2.0 million Enel Chile S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Enel Chile S-A's "short interest". This figure is 261.2% up from 550,391 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Enel Chile S-A shares can be evaluated.

Enel Chile S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Enel Chile S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Enel Chile S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Enel Chile S-A shares traded daily (recently around 443766.51785714). Enel Chile S-A's SIR currently stands at 4.48. In other words for every 100,000 Enel Chile S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4480 shares are currently held short.

However Enel Chile S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Enel Chile S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Enel Chile S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Enel Chile S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Enel Chile S-A shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Enel Chile S-A shares, roughly 0 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 Enel Chile S-A.
