Is Latham Group under- or over-valued?

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

Latham Group's P/E ratio

Latham 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 78x. In other words, Latham Group shares trade at around 78x 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.

However, Latham Group's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the building products & equipment industry or those of similar companies.

Latham Group's EBITDA

Latham Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $102 million.

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

Shorting Latham Group shares

There are currently 4.3 million Latham Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Latham Group's "short interest". This figure is 57.8% up from 2.7 million last month.

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

Latham Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Latham Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Latham Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Latham Group shares traded daily (recently around 553396.91912709). Latham Group's SIR currently stands at 7.79. In other words for every 100,000 Latham Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7790 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Latham Group's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Latham Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Latham Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Latham Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Latham Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Latham Group shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.1126% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Latham Group shares, roughly 113 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 Latham Group.
