Is New York Mortgage Trust under- or over-valued?

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

New York Mortgage Trust's P/E ratio

New York Mortgage Trust's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, New York Mortgage Trust shares trade at around 3x 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.

New York Mortgage Trust's PEG ratio

New York Mortgage Trust's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.97. 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 New York Mortgage Trust's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting New York Mortgage Trust shares

There are currently 10.6 million New York Mortgage Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as New York Mortgage Trust's "short interest". This figure is 64.3% up from 6.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting New York Mortgage Trust shares can be evaluated.

New York Mortgage Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

New York Mortgage Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of New York Mortgage Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of New York Mortgage Trust shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). New York Mortgage Trust's SIR currently stands at 3.81. In other words for every 100,000 New York Mortgage Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3810 shares are currently held short.

However New York Mortgage Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of New York Mortgage Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable New York Mortgage Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case New York Mortgage Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 New York Mortgage Trust shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0323% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable New York Mortgage Trust shares, roughly 32 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 New York Mortgage Trust.

Have New York Mortgage Trust's shares ever split?

New York Mortgage Trust's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 29 May 2008. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your New York Mortgage Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for New York Mortgage Trust shares which in turn could have impacted New York Mortgage Trust's share price.

New York Mortgage Trust share price volatility

This would suggest that New York Mortgage Trust's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
