Is Erie Indemnity Company under- or over-valued?

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

Erie Indemnity Company's P/E ratio

Erie Indemnity Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, Erie Indemnity Company shares trade at around 32x 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.

Erie Indemnity Company's PEG ratio

Erie Indemnity Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.05. 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 Erie Indemnity Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Erie Indemnity Company shares

There are currently 947,261 Erie Indemnity Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Erie Indemnity Company's "short interest". This figure is 0.2% up from 945,457 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Erie Indemnity Company shares can be evaluated.

Erie Indemnity Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Erie Indemnity Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Erie Indemnity Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Erie Indemnity Company shares traded daily (recently around 63531.924882629). Erie Indemnity Company's SIR currently stands at 14.91. In other words for every 100,000 Erie Indemnity Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 14910 shares are currently held short.

However Erie Indemnity Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Erie Indemnity Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Erie Indemnity Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Erie Indemnity Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Erie Indemnity Company shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0427% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Erie Indemnity Company shares, roughly 43 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 Erie Indemnity Company.
