Is Overstock-com under- or over-valued?

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

Overstock-com's P/E ratio

Overstock-com's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, Overstock-com shares trade at around 38x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Overstock-com's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $102.1 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Overstock-com's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Overstock-com shares

There are currently 3.9 million Overstock-com shares held short by investors – that's known as Overstock-com's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% up from 3.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Overstock-com shares can be evaluated.

Overstock-com's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Overstock-com's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Overstock-com shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Overstock-com shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Overstock-com's SIR currently stands at 2.74. In other words for every 100,000 Overstock-com shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2740 shares are currently held short.

However Overstock-com's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Overstock-com shares, or, against the total number of tradable Overstock-com shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Overstock-com's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Overstock-com shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0922% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Overstock-com shares, roughly 92 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 Overstock-com.

Overstock-com share price volatility
