Is Pacific Coast Oil Trust under- or over-valued?

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

Pacific Coast Oil Trust's P/E ratio

Pacific Coast Oil 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 1x. In other words, Pacific Coast Oil Trust shares trade at around 1x 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 Pacific Coast Oil Trust shares

There are currently 775,797 Pacific Coast Oil Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Pacific Coast Oil Trust's "short interest". This figure is 79.5% up from 432,257 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Pacific Coast Oil Trust shares can be evaluated.

Pacific Coast Oil Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Pacific Coast Oil Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pacific Coast Oil Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pacific Coast Oil Trust shares traded daily (recently around 957774.07407407). Pacific Coast Oil Trust's SIR currently stands at 0.81. In other words for every 100,000 Pacific Coast Oil Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 810 shares are currently held short.

However Pacific Coast Oil Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pacific Coast Oil Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pacific Coast Oil Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pacific Coast Oil Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pacific Coast Oil Trust shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pacific Coast Oil Trust 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 Pacific Coast Oil Trust.
