Is Energy Recovery under- or over-valued?

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

Energy Recovery's P/E ratio

Energy Recovery's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Energy Recovery shares trade at around 24x 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.

Energy Recovery's PEG ratio

Energy Recovery's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.09. 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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Energy Recovery's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Energy Recovery's EBITDA

Energy Recovery's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$33.2 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Energy Recovery's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Energy Recovery shares

There are currently 2.8 million Energy Recovery shares held short by investors – that's known as Energy Recovery's "short interest". This figure is 13.3% down from 3.2 million last month.

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

Energy Recovery's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Energy Recovery's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Energy Recovery shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Energy Recovery shares traded daily (recently around 255662.54612546). Energy Recovery's SIR currently stands at 10.84. In other words for every 100,000 Energy Recovery shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10840 shares are currently held short.

However Energy Recovery's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Energy Recovery shares, or, against the total number of tradable Energy Recovery shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Energy Recovery's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Energy Recovery shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0668% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Energy Recovery shares, roughly 67 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Energy Recovery.

Energy Recovery share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Energy Recovery's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.11 up to $11.07. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Energy Recovery's is 2.92. This would suggest that Energy Recovery's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
