Is Invesco Mortgage Capital under- or over-valued?

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

Invesco Mortgage Capital's P/E ratio

Invesco Mortgage Capital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Invesco Mortgage Capital shares trade at around 1x 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.

Shorting Invesco Mortgage Capital shares

There are currently 44.8 million Invesco Mortgage Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as Invesco Mortgage Capital's "short interest". This figure is 17.9% down from 54.6 million last month.

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

Invesco Mortgage Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Invesco Mortgage Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Invesco Mortgage Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Invesco Mortgage Capital shares traded daily (recently around 6.4 million). Invesco Mortgage Capital's SIR currently stands at 6.98. In other words for every 100,000 Invesco Mortgage Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6980 shares are currently held short.

However Invesco Mortgage Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Invesco Mortgage Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Invesco Mortgage Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Invesco Mortgage Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.25% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Invesco Mortgage Capital shares in existence, roughly 250 shares are currently held short) or 0.2903% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Invesco Mortgage Capital shares, roughly 290 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Invesco Mortgage Capital.
