Is FirstService Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing FirstService Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of FirstService Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
FirstService Corporation's P/E ratio
FirstService Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 77x. In other words, FirstService Corporation shares trade at around 77x 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.
FirstService Corporation's PEG ratio
FirstService Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.17. 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 FirstService Corporation'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 FirstService Corporation shares
There are currently 108,904 FirstService Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as FirstService Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 18.4% down from 133,415 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting FirstService Corporation shares can be evaluated.
FirstService Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
FirstService Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FirstService Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FirstService Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 31658.139534884). FirstService Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.44. In other words for every 100,000 FirstService Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3440 shares are currently held short.
However FirstService Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FirstService Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable FirstService Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FirstService Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FirstService Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0032% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FirstService Corporation shares, roughly 3 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 FirstService Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 18.63% of net profits
Recently FirstService Corporation has paid out, on average, around 18.63% of net profits as dividends.

In FirstService Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.677 per share.
While FirstService Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that FirstService Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
