Is Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V under- or over-valued?

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

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V's P/E ratio

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V shares trade at around 8x 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.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V's PEG ratio

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.735. 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 Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 10.7 million Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V shares held short by investors – that's known as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V's "short interest". This figure is 7.1% up from 10.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V shares can be evaluated.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V shares traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V's SIR currently stands at 4.25. In other words for every 100,000 Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4250 shares are currently held short.

However Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0095% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V shares, roughly 10 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 Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 30.14% of the current stock value.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 34.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V shares which in turn could have impacted Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N-V's share price.
