Is Pioneer Power Solutions under- or over-valued?

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

Pioneer Power Solutions's P/E ratio

Pioneer Power Solutions's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Pioneer Power Solutions shares trade at around 3x 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.

Pioneer Power Solutions's PEG ratio

Pioneer Power Solutions's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.96. 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 Pioneer Power Solutions's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Pioneer Power Solutions shares

There are currently 26,499 Pioneer Power Solutions shares held short by investors – that's known as Pioneer Power Solutions's "short interest". This figure is 63.1% down from 71,719 last month.

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

Pioneer Power Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Pioneer Power Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pioneer Power Solutions shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pioneer Power Solutions shares traded daily (recently around 441650). Pioneer Power Solutions's SIR currently stands at 0.06. In other words for every 100,000 Pioneer Power Solutions shares traded daily on the market, roughly 60 shares are currently held short.

However Pioneer Power Solutions's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pioneer Power Solutions shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pioneer Power Solutions shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pioneer Power Solutions's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pioneer Power Solutions shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.1415% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pioneer Power Solutions shares, roughly 142 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 Pioneer Power Solutions.
