Is Realogy under- or over-valued?

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

Realogy's P/E ratio

Realogy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, Realogy shares trade at around 23x 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.

Realogy's PEG ratio

Realogy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.37. 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 Realogy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Realogy's EBITDA

Realogy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$537 million.

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

Shorting Realogy shares

There are currently 14.4 million Realogy shares held short by investors – that's known as Realogy's "short interest". This figure is 2.2% down from 14.8 million last month.

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

Realogy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Realogy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Realogy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Realogy shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Realogy's SIR currently stands at 7.25. In other words for every 100,000 Realogy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7250 shares are currently held short.

However Realogy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Realogy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Realogy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Realogy's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Realogy shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.311% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Realogy shares, roughly 311 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Realogy.

Realogy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Realogy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.09 up to $13.88. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Realogy's is 2.9696. This would suggest that Realogy's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
