Is EZCORP under- or over-valued?

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

EZCORP's PEG ratio

EZCORP's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5058. 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 EZCORP's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

EZCORP's EBITDA

EZCORP's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $55.3 million.

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

Shorting EZCORP shares

There are currently 5.6 million EZCORP shares held short by investors – that's known as EZCORP's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% up from 5.4 million last month.

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

EZCORP's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

EZCORP's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of EZCORP shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of EZCORP shares traded daily (recently around 403159.27536232). EZCORP's SIR currently stands at 13.8. In other words for every 100,000 EZCORP shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13800 shares are currently held short.

However EZCORP's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of EZCORP shares, or, against the total number of tradable EZCORP shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case EZCORP's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 EZCORP shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1158% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable EZCORP shares, roughly 116 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 EZCORP.

EZCORP share dividends

We're not expecting EZCORP to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have EZCORP's shares ever split?

EZCORP's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 11 December 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your EZCORP shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for EZCORP shares which in turn could have impacted EZCORP's share price.

EZCORP share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, EZCORP's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.34 up to $8.79. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EZPW.US volatility(beta: 1.44)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 EZCORP's is 1.4429. This would suggest that EZCORP's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
