Is G-III Apparel Group under- or over-valued?

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

G-III Apparel Group's P/E ratio

G-III Apparel Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 42x. In other words, G-III Apparel Group shares trade at around 42x 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.

G-III Apparel Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.98. 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 G-III Apparel Group'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 G-III Apparel Group shares

There are currently 6.3 million G-III Apparel Group shares held short by investors – that's known as G-III Apparel Group's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% down from 6.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting G-III Apparel Group shares can be evaluated.

G-III Apparel Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

G-III Apparel Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of G-III Apparel Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of G-III Apparel Group shares traded daily (recently around 588660.67732832). G-III Apparel Group's SIR currently stands at 10.63. In other words for every 100,000 G-III Apparel Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10630 shares are currently held short.

However G-III Apparel Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of G-III Apparel Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable G-III Apparel Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case G-III Apparel Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 G-III Apparel Group shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1695% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable G-III Apparel Group shares, roughly 170 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 G-III Apparel Group.

Have G-III Apparel Group's shares ever split?

G-III Apparel Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 May 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your G-III Apparel Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for G-III Apparel Group shares which in turn could have impacted G-III Apparel Group's share price.
