Is Everest Re Group under- or over-valued?

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

Everest Re Group's P/E ratio

Everest Re 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 12x. In other words, Everest Re Group shares trade at around 12x 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 Everest Re Group shares

There are currently 588,118 Everest Re Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Everest Re Group's "short interest". This figure is 13.5% down from 680,193 last month.

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

Everest Re Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Everest Re Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Everest Re Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Everest Re Group shares traded daily (recently around 321375.95628415). Everest Re Group's SIR currently stands at 1.83. In other words for every 100,000 Everest Re Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1830 shares are currently held short.

However Everest Re Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Everest Re Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Everest Re Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Everest Re Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Everest Re Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0149% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Everest Re Group shares, roughly 15 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 Everest Re Group.

Everest Re Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 79.59% of net profits

Recently Everest Re Group has paid out, on average, around 79.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Everest Re Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Everest Re Group's case, that would currently equate to about $6.2 per share.

Everest Re Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
