Is Shift Technologies under- or over-valued?

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

Shift Technologies's P/E ratio

Shift Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 191x. In other words, Shift Technologies shares trade at around 191x 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.

Shorting Shift Technologies shares

There are currently 29,074 Shift Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Shift Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 51.3% up from 19,211 last month.

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

Shift Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Shift Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Shift Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Shift Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 290740). Shift Technologies's SIR currently stands at 0.1. In other words for every 100,000 Shift Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 100 shares are currently held short.

However Shift Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Shift Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Shift Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Shift Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Shift Technologies shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0019% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Shift Technologies shares, roughly 2 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 Shift Technologies.
