Is Palomar under- or over-valued?

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

Palomar's P/E ratio

Palomar's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 296x. In other words, Palomar shares trade at around 296x 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.

Palomar's EBITDA

Palomar's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.5 million.

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

Shorting Palomar shares

There are currently 1.1 million Palomar shares held short by investors – that's known as Palomar's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% down from 1.1 million last month.

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

Palomar's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Palomar's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Palomar shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Palomar shares traded daily (recently around 312540.90909091). Palomar's SIR currently stands at 3.52. In other words for every 100,000 Palomar shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3520 shares are currently held short.

However Palomar's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Palomar shares, or, against the total number of tradable Palomar shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Palomar's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Palomar shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0538% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Palomar shares, roughly 54 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 Palomar.

Palomar share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Palomar's shares have ranged in value from as little as $51.46 up to $121.87. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Palomar's is -0.2914.
