Is Just Energy Group under- or over-valued?

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

Just Energy Group's P/E ratio

Just Energy Group'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, Just Energy Group 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 Just Energy Group shares

There are currently 2.6 million Just Energy Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Just Energy Group's "short interest". This figure is 237% up from 778,453 last month.

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

Just Energy Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Just Energy Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Just Energy Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Just Energy Group shares traded daily (recently around 5.5 million). Just Energy Group's SIR currently stands at 0.48. In other words for every 100,000 Just Energy Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 480 shares are currently held short.

However Just Energy Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Just Energy Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Just Energy Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Just Energy Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Just Energy Group shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Just Energy Group shares, roughly 0 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 Just Energy Group.

We're not expecting Just Energy Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Just Energy Group's shares ever split?

Just Energy Group's shares were split on a 1:33 basis on 28 September 2020. So if you had owned 33 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Just Energy Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Just Energy Group shares which in turn could have impacted Just Energy Group's share price.

Just Energy Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Just Energy Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.63 up to $26.73. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

JE.US volatility(beta: 1.27)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 Just Energy Group's is 1.2678. This would suggest that Just Energy Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
