Is Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company under- or over-valued?

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

Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company's P/E ratio

Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 98x. In other words, Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company shares trade at around 98x 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.

Shorting Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company shares

There are currently 111,532 Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company's "short interest". This figure is 1% down from 112,607 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company shares can be evaluated.

Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company shares traded daily (recently around 15320.32967033). Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company's SIR currently stands at 7.28. In other words for every 100,000 Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7280 shares are currently held short.

However Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0166% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company shares, roughly 17 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 Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company.

Have Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company shares which in turn could have impacted Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company's share price.

Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Maui Land-and-Pineapple Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.5 up to $13.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
