Is LM Funding America under- or over-valued?

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

LM Funding America's P/E ratio

LM Funding America's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2x. In other words, LM Funding America shares trade at around 2x 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 LM Funding America shares

There are currently 146,273 LM Funding America shares held short by investors – that's known as LM Funding America's "short interest". This figure is 16.8% up from 125,284 last month.

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

LM Funding America's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

LM Funding America's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LM Funding America shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LM Funding America shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). LM Funding America's SIR currently stands at 0.1. In other words for every 100,000 LM Funding America shares traded daily on the market, roughly 100 shares are currently held short.

However LM Funding America's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LM Funding America shares, or, against the total number of tradable LM Funding America shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LM Funding America's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LM Funding America shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0297% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LM Funding America shares, roughly 30 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 LM Funding America.

Have LM Funding America's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for LM Funding America shares which in turn could have impacted LM Funding America's share price.

LM Funding America share price volatility

LMFA.US volatility(beta: 1.24)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while LM Funding America's is 1.2376. This would suggest that LM Funding America's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
