Is Gaia under- or over-valued?

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

Gaia's P/E ratio

Gaia's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 385x. In other words, Gaia shares trade at around 385x 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.

Gaia's PEG ratio

Gaia's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 16.3833. 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 Gaia's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Gaia's EBITDA

Gaia's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$7.4 million.

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

Shorting Gaia shares

There are currently 899,429 Gaia shares held short by investors – that's known as Gaia's "short interest". This figure is 7.8% down from 976,040 last month.

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

Gaia's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Gaia's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Gaia shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Gaia shares traded daily (recently around 84691.996233522). Gaia's SIR currently stands at 10.62. In other words for every 100,000 Gaia shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10620 shares are currently held short.

However Gaia's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Gaia shares, or, against the total number of tradable Gaia shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Gaia's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Gaia shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0806% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Gaia shares, roughly 81 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 Gaia.

Gaia share price volatility

GAIA.US volatility(beta: 0.69)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 Gaia's is 0.6894. This would suggest that Gaia's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
