Is Enstar Group under- or over-valued?

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

Enstar Group's P/E ratio

Enstar Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Enstar Group shares trade at around 3x 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.

Enstar Group's PEG ratio

Enstar Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.76. 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 Enstar Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Enstar Group's EBITDA

Enstar Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.7 billion.

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

Shorting Enstar Group shares

There are currently 157,452 Enstar Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Enstar Group's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% up from 156,382 last month.

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

Enstar Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Enstar Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Enstar Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Enstar Group shares traded daily (recently around 56434.408602151). Enstar Group's SIR currently stands at 2.79. In other words for every 100,000 Enstar Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2790 shares are currently held short.

However Enstar Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Enstar Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Enstar Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Enstar Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Enstar Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.012% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Enstar Group shares, roughly 12 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 Enstar Group.
