Is Kohls Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Kohls Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kohls Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Kohls Corporation's P/E ratio
Kohls Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Kohls Corporation shares trade at around 20x 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.
Kohls Corporation's PEG ratio
Kohls Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 20.277. 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 Kohls Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Kohls Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Kohls Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kohls Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kohls Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kohls Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kohls Corporation shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0891% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kohls Corporation shares, roughly 89 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 Kohls Corporation.
