Is Kamada under- or over-valued?

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

Kamada's P/E ratio

Kamada's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Kamada shares trade at around 14x 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.

Kamada's PEG ratio

Kamada's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 8.75. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Kamada's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Kamada's EBITDA

Kamada's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$25.9 million.

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

There are currently 572,349 Kamada shares held short by investors – that's known as Kamada's "short interest". This figure is 3.8% up from 551,400 last month.

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

Kamada's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kamada's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kamada shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kamada shares traded daily (recently around 131574.48275862). Kamada's SIR currently stands at 4.35. In other words for every 100,000 Kamada shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4350 shares are currently held short.

However Kamada's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kamada shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kamada shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kamada's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kamada shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0198% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kamada shares, roughly 20 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 Kamada.
