Is Greenhill-and-CoInc under- or over-valued?

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

Greenhill-and-CoInc's P/E ratio

Greenhill-and-CoInc's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, Greenhill-and-CoInc shares trade at around 31x 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.

Greenhill-and-CoInc's PEG ratio

Greenhill-and-CoInc's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 68.95. 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 Greenhill-and-CoInc's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Greenhill-and-CoInc's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

In this case Greenhill-and-CoInc's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Greenhill-and-CoInc shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0572% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Greenhill-and-CoInc shares, roughly 57 shares are currently held short).
