Is Frontline under- or over-valued?
Valuing Frontline stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Frontline's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Frontline's P/E ratio
Frontline's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Frontline shares trade at around 6x 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.
Frontline's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $445.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Frontline's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Frontline shares
There are currently 4.0 million Frontline shares held short by investors – that's known as Frontline's "short interest". This figure is 20.2% down from 5.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Frontline shares can be evaluated.
Frontline's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Frontline's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Frontline shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Frontline shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Frontline's SIR currently stands at 3.15. In other words for every 100,000 Frontline shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3150 shares are currently held short.
However Frontline's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Frontline shares, or, against the total number of tradable Frontline shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Frontline's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Frontline shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0369% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Frontline shares, roughly 37 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 Frontline.

Frontline share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 39.37% of net profits
Recently Frontline has paid out, on average, around 39.37% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 25.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Frontline shareholders could enjoy a 25.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Frontline's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.
While Frontline's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Frontline may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Frontline's most recent dividend payout was on 28 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Frontline's shares ever split?
Frontline's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 3 February 2016. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Frontline shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Frontline shares which in turn could have impacted Frontline's share price.
Frontline share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Frontline's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.28 up to $9.21. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Frontline's is 0.4559. This would suggest that Frontline's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
