Is Oi S-A under- or over-valued?

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

Oi S-A's P/E ratio

Oi S-A's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 0x. In other words, Oi S-A shares trade at around 0x 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.

Shorting Oi S-A shares

There are currently 1.2 million Oi S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Oi S-A's "short interest". This figure is 43.3% down from 2.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Oi S-A shares can be evaluated.

Oi S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Oi S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oi S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oi S-A shares traded daily (recently around 573130.8411215). Oi S-A's SIR currently stands at 2.14. In other words for every 100,000 Oi S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2140 shares are currently held short.

However Oi S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oi S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oi S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oi S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oi S-A shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oi S-A shares, roughly 0 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 Oi S-A.

Oi S-A share dividends

We're not expecting Oi S-A to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Oi S-A's shares ever split?

Oi S-A's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 1 February 2016. So if you had owned 5 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 Oi S-A shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Oi S-A shares which in turn could have impacted Oi S-A's share price.

Oi S-A share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Oi S-A's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.43 up to $2.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

OIBR-C.US volatility(beta: 1.63)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 Oi S-A's is 1.6293. This would suggest that Oi S-A's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
