Is Gibraltar Industries under- or over-valued?

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.

Gibraltar Industries's PEG ratio

Gibraltar Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.02. 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 Gibraltar Industries'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 Gibraltar Industries shares

There are currently 580,717 Gibraltar Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Gibraltar Industries's "short interest". This figure is 2.3% up from 567,744 last month.

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

Gibraltar Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Gibraltar Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Gibraltar Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Gibraltar Industries shares traded daily (recently around 110823.85496183). Gibraltar Industries's SIR currently stands at 5.24. In other words for every 100,000 Gibraltar Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5240 shares are currently held short.

However Gibraltar Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Gibraltar Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Gibraltar Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Gibraltar Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Gibraltar Industries shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0179% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Gibraltar Industries shares, roughly 18 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Gibraltar Industries.

Have Gibraltar Industries's shares ever split?

Gibraltar Industries's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 31 October 2004. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Gibraltar Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Gibraltar Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Gibraltar Industries's share price.

Gibraltar Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Gibraltar Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $56.97 up to $100.71. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ROCK.US volatility(beta: 1.07)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 Gibraltar Industries's is 1.0714. This would suggest that Gibraltar Industries's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
