Is Fly Leasing under- or over-valued?

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

Fly Leasing's P/E ratio

Fly Leasing's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Fly Leasing shares trade at around 3x 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.

Fly Leasing's PEG ratio

Fly Leasing's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.07. 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 Fly Leasing's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Fly Leasing's EBITDA

Fly Leasing's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$536.6 million.

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

Shorting Fly Leasing shares

There are currently 363,479 Fly Leasing shares held short by investors – that's known as Fly Leasing's "short interest". This figure is 2.6% down from 373,259 last month.

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

Fly Leasing's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fly Leasing's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fly Leasing shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fly Leasing shares traded daily (recently around 367150.50505051). Fly Leasing's SIR currently stands at 0.99. In other words for every 100,000 Fly Leasing shares traded daily on the market, roughly 990 shares are currently held short.

However Fly Leasing's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fly Leasing shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fly Leasing shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fly Leasing's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fly Leasing shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fly Leasing shares, roughly 0 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 Fly Leasing.
