Is Golden Ocean Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Golden Ocean Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Golden Ocean Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Golden Ocean Group's P/E ratio
Golden Ocean 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 32x. In other words, Golden Ocean Group shares trade at around 32x 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.
Golden Ocean Group's PEG ratio
Golden Ocean Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 131.35. 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 Golden Ocean 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.
Golden Ocean Group's EBITDA
Golden Ocean Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $201.2 million.

Shorting Golden Ocean Group shares
There are currently 699,955 Golden Ocean Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Golden Ocean Group's "short interest". This figure is 40.7% up from 497,505 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Golden Ocean Group shares can be evaluated.
Golden Ocean Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Golden Ocean Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Golden Ocean Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Golden Ocean Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Golden Ocean Group's SIR currently stands at 0.54. In other words for every 100,000 Golden Ocean Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 540 shares are currently held short.
However Golden Ocean Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Golden Ocean Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Golden Ocean Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Golden Ocean Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Golden Ocean Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0058% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Golden Ocean Group shares, roughly 6 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 Golden Ocean Group.

Golden Ocean Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 1.09% of net profits
Recently Golden Ocean Group has paid out, on average, around 1.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Golden Ocean Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Golden Ocean Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.25 per share.
While Golden Ocean Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Golden Ocean Group is investing more in its future growth.
Golden Ocean Group's most recent dividend payout was on 9 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Golden Ocean Group's shares ever split?
Golden Ocean Group's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 31 July 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 Golden Ocean Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Golden Ocean Group shares which in turn could have impacted Golden Ocean Group's share price.
Golden Ocean Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Golden Ocean Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.0947 up to $11.495. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Golden Ocean Group's is 1.8033. This would suggest that Golden Ocean Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
