Is Maiden under- or over-valued?

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

Maiden's P/E ratio

Maiden's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Maiden shares trade at around 19x 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.

Maiden's PEG ratio

Maiden's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.34. 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 Maiden's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Maiden's EBITDA

Maiden's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$48.7 million.

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

Shorting Maiden shares

There are currently 175,394 Maiden shares held short by investors – that's known as Maiden's "short interest". This figure is 384.4% up from 36,207 last month.

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

Maiden's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Maiden's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Maiden shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Maiden shares traded daily (recently around 208802.38095238). Maiden's SIR currently stands at 0.84. In other words for every 100,000 Maiden shares traded daily on the market, roughly 840 shares are currently held short.

However Maiden's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Maiden shares, or, against the total number of tradable Maiden shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Maiden's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Maiden shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0024% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Maiden shares, roughly 2 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 Maiden.
