Is Genie Energy under- or over-valued?

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

Genie Energy's P/E ratio

Genie Energy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 40x. In other words, Genie Energy shares trade at around 40x 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.

Genie Energy's EBITDA

Genie Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $9.1 million.

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

Shorting Genie Energy shares

There are currently 202,388 Genie Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Genie Energy's "short interest". This figure is 67% down from 612,402 last month.

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

Genie Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Genie Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Genie Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Genie Energy shares traded daily (recently around 202388). Genie Energy's SIR currently stands at 1. In other words for every 100,000 Genie Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1000 shares are currently held short.

However Genie Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Genie Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Genie Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Genie Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genie Energy shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0099% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genie Energy 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 Genie Energy.

Genie Energy share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 170% of net profits

Recently Genie Energy has paid out, on average, around 170% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Genie Energy shareholders could enjoy a 5.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Genie Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $0.17 per share.

Genie Energy's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Genie Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 10 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Genie Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Genie Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.51 up to $9.5024. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GNE.US volatility(beta: 0.55)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Genie Energy's is 0.5479. This would suggest that Genie Energy's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
