Is Meritor under- or over-valued?

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

Meritor's P/E ratio

Meritor's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, Meritor shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Meritor's PEG ratio

Meritor's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.69. 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 Meritor's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Meritor's EBITDA

Meritor's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $233 million.

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

Shorting Meritor shares

There are currently 2.6 million Meritor shares held short by investors – that's known as Meritor's "short interest". This figure is 6.2% up from 2.5 million last month.

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

Meritor's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Meritor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Meritor shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Meritor shares traded daily (recently around 605131.63972286). Meritor's SIR currently stands at 4.33. In other words for every 100,000 Meritor shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4330 shares are currently held short.

However Meritor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Meritor shares, or, against the total number of tradable Meritor shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Meritor's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Meritor shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0378% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Meritor shares, roughly 38 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 Meritor.

MTOR.US volatility(beta: 2.08)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 Meritor's is 2.0843. This would suggest that Meritor's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
