Is PermRock Royalty Trust under- or over-valued?

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

PermRock Royalty Trust's P/E ratio

PermRock Royalty 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 12x. In other words, PermRock Royalty Trust shares trade at around 12x 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.

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

PermRock Royalty Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However PermRock Royalty Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PermRock Royalty Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable PermRock Royalty Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PermRock Royalty Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PermRock Royalty Trust shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0089% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PermRock Royalty Trust shares, roughly 9 shares are currently held short).
