Is NCR Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

NCR Corporation's P/E ratio

NCR Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, NCR Corporation shares trade at around 9x 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.

NCR Corporation's PEG ratio

NCR Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.74. 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 NCR Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

NCR Corporation's EBITDA

NCR Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$642 million.

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

Shorting NCR Corporation shares

There are currently 6.1 million NCR Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as NCR Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.2% down from 6.7 million last month.

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

NCR Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NCR Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NCR Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NCR Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). NCR Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.93. In other words for every 100,000 NCR Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5930 shares are currently held short.

However NCR Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NCR Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable NCR Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NCR Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NCR Corporation shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0528% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NCR Corporation shares, roughly 53 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 NCR Corporation.
