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 14x. In other words, Everest Re Group shares trade at around 14x 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 1.1 million Everest Re Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Everest Re Group's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% up from 1.0 million 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 317549.24471299). Everest Re Group's SIR currently stands at 3.31. In other words for every 100,000 Everest Re Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3310 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 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Everest Re Group shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0509% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Everest Re Group shares, roughly 51 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.
