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 69x. In other words, Energy Recovery shares trade at around 69x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-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 $23.1 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 2.6 million Energy Recovery shares held short by investors – that's known as Energy Recovery's "short interest". This figure is 2.9% down from 2.7 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 381886.002886). Energy Recovery's SIR currently stands at 6.93. In other words for every 100,000 Energy Recovery shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6930 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 0.0643% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Energy Recovery shares, roughly 64 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Energy Recovery.

ERII.US volatility(beta: 1.27)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

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 1.2672. This would suggest that Energy Recovery's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
