Is HD Supply under- or over-valued?

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

HD Supply's P/E ratio

HD Supply's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, HD Supply shares trade at around 5x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

HD Supply's PEG ratio

HD Supply's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 10.1981. 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 HD Supply's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

HD Supply's EBITDA

HD Supply's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$762.3 million.

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

Shorting HD Supply shares

There are currently 7.3 million HD Supply shares held short by investors – that's known as HD Supply's "short interest". This figure is 16.3% up from 6.3 million last month.

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

HD Supply's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

HD Supply's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of HD Supply shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of HD Supply shares traded daily (recently around 7.3 million). HD Supply's SIR currently stands at 1. In other words for every 100,000 HD Supply shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1000 shares are currently held short.

However HD Supply's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of HD Supply shares, or, against the total number of tradable HD Supply shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case HD Supply's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 HD Supply shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0647% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable HD Supply shares, roughly 65 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 HD Supply.
