Is PBF Energy under- or over-valued?

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

PBF Energy's P/E ratio

PBF Energy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, PBF Energy shares trade at around 4x 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.

PBF Energy's PEG ratio

PBF Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.51. 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 PBF Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

PBF Energy's EBITDA

PBF Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$603.3 million.

Shorting PBF Energy shares

There are currently 20.5 million PBF Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as PBF Energy's "short interest". This figure is 42.9% up from 14.4 million last month.

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

PBF Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PBF Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PBF Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PBF Energy shares traded daily (recently around 6.0 million). PBF Energy's SIR currently stands at 3.42. In other words for every 100,000 PBF Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3420 shares are currently held short.

However PBF Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PBF Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable PBF Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PBF Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.17% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PBF Energy shares in existence, roughly 170 shares are currently held short) or 0.2145% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PBF Energy shares, roughly 215 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 PBF Energy.
