Is Raymond James Financial under- or over-valued?
Valuing Raymond James Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Raymond James Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Raymond James Financial's P/E ratio
Raymond James Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Raymond James Financial shares trade at around 17x 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.
Raymond James Financial's PEG ratio
Raymond James Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9298. 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 Raymond James Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Raymond James Financial shares can be evaluated.
Raymond James Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Raymond James Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Raymond James Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Raymond James Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Raymond James Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Raymond James Financial shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0165% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Raymond James Financial shares, roughly 17 shares are currently held short).
