Is MasTec under- or over-valued?

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

MasTec's P/E ratio

MasTec's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, MasTec shares trade at around 21x 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.

MasTec's PEG ratio

MasTec's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.99. 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 MasTec's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

MasTec's EBITDA

MasTec's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $814.6 million.

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

Shorting MasTec shares

There are currently 3.5 million MasTec shares held short by investors – that's known as MasTec's "short interest". This figure is 34.4% down from 5.3 million last month.

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

MasTec's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MasTec's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MasTec shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MasTec shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). MasTec's SIR currently stands at 2.57. In other words for every 100,000 MasTec shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2570 shares are currently held short.

However MasTec's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MasTec shares, or, against the total number of tradable MasTec shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MasTec's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MasTec shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.062% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MasTec shares, roughly 62 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 MasTec.

MasTec share dividends

We're not expecting MasTec to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have MasTec's shares ever split?

MasTec's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 19 June 2000. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your MasTec shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for MasTec shares which in turn could have impacted MasTec's share price.

MasTec share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, MasTec's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.4 up to $122.33. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MTZ.US volatility(beta: 1.3)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while MasTec's is 1.3009. This would suggest that MasTec's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
