Is iFresh under- or over-valued?

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

iFresh's P/E ratio

iFresh's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 72x. In other words, iFresh shares trade at around 72x 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.

iFresh's EBITDA

iFresh's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$433,894.

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

Shorting iFresh shares

There are currently 512,569 iFresh shares held short by investors – that's known as iFresh's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% up from 506,373 last month.

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

iFresh's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

iFresh's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of iFresh shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of iFresh shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). iFresh's SIR currently stands at 0.41. In other words for every 100,000 iFresh shares traded daily on the market, roughly 410 shares are currently held short.

However iFresh's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of iFresh shares, or, against the total number of tradable iFresh shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case iFresh's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 iFresh shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0193% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable iFresh shares, roughly 19 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 iFresh.

iFresh share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, iFresh's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.345 up to $2.83. 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 iFresh's is -3.1888. This would suggest that iFresh's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, iFresh has bucked the trend.
