Is Mistras Group under- or over-valued?

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

Mistras Group's P/E ratio

Mistras Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 124x. In other words, Mistras Group shares trade at around 124x 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.

Mistras Group's PEG ratio

Mistras Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.89. 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 Mistras Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Mistras Group's EBITDA

Mistras Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $51.7 million.

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

Shorting Mistras Group shares

There are currently 272,888 Mistras Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Mistras Group's "short interest". This figure is 0.4% down from 273,899 last month.

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

Mistras Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Mistras Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mistras Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mistras Group shares traded daily (recently around 83707.975460123). Mistras Group's SIR currently stands at 3.26. In other words for every 100,000 Mistras Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3260 shares are currently held short.

However Mistras Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mistras Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mistras Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mistras Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mistras Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0138% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mistras Group shares, roughly 14 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 Mistras Group.

Have Mistras Group's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Mistras Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mistras Group shares which in turn could have impacted Mistras Group's share price.
