Is On Deck Capital under- or over-valued?

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

On Deck Capital's P/E ratio

On Deck Capital'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, On Deck Capital 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.

Shorting On Deck Capital shares

There are currently 673,317 On Deck Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as On Deck Capital's "short interest". This figure is 4.9% up from 642,135 last month.

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

On Deck Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

On Deck Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of On Deck Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of On Deck Capital shares traded daily (recently around 506253.38345865). On Deck Capital's SIR currently stands at 1.33. In other words for every 100,000 On Deck Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1330 shares are currently held short.

However On Deck Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of On Deck Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable On Deck Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case On Deck Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 On Deck Capital shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0118% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable On Deck Capital shares, roughly 12 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 On Deck Capital.
