Is IAA under- or over-valued?

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

IAA's P/E ratio

IAA's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 39x. In other words, IAA shares trade at around 39x 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.

IAA's EBITDA

IAA's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $424.8 million.

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

Shorting IAA shares

There are currently 3.6 million IAA shares held short by investors – that's known as IAA's "short interest". This figure is 32.2% down from 5.4 million last month.

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

IAA's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

IAA's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IAA shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IAA shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). IAA's SIR currently stands at 3.33. In other words for every 100,000 IAA shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3330 shares are currently held short.

However IAA's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IAA shares, or, against the total number of tradable IAA shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IAA's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IAA shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.029% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IAA shares, roughly 29 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 IAA.

IAA share price volatility

IAA.US volatility(beta: 1.71)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while IAA's is 1.7142. This would suggest that IAA's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
