Is Orion Group under- or over-valued?

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

Orion Group's P/E ratio

Orion 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 8x. In other words, Orion Group shares trade at around 8x 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.

Orion Group's PEG ratio

Orion Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3248. 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 Orion 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.

Orion Group's EBITDA

Orion Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$48.4 million.

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

Shorting Orion Group shares

There are currently 116,593 Orion Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Orion Group's "short interest". This figure is 34% down from 176,557 last month.

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

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

Orion Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Orion Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Orion Group shares traded daily (recently around 298956.41025641). Orion Group's SIR currently stands at 0.39. In other words for every 100,000 Orion Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 390 shares are currently held short.

However Orion Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Orion Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Orion Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Orion Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Orion Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0048% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Orion Group shares, roughly 5 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 Orion Group.

Orion Group share dividends

We're not expecting Orion Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Orion Group's shares ever split?

Orion Group's shares were split on a 40:1 basis on 21 December 2012. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 40 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Orion Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 97.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Orion Group shares which in turn could have impacted Orion Group's share price.

Orion Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Orion Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.53 up to $5.0666. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ORN.US volatility(beta: 1.22)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 Orion Group's is 1.2205. This would suggest that Orion Group's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
