Is Salem Media Group under- or over-valued?

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

Salem Media Group's P/E ratio

Salem Media Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 41x. In other words, Salem Media Group shares trade at around 41x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Salem Media Group's PEG ratio

Salem Media Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.69. 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 Salem Media Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Salem Media Group's EBITDA

Shorting Salem Media Group shares

There are currently 479,582 Salem Media Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Salem Media Group's "short interest". This figure is 14.2% up from 420,126 last month.

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

Salem Media Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Salem Media Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Salem Media Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Salem Media Group shares traded daily (recently around 340129.07801418). Salem Media Group's SIR currently stands at 1.41. In other words for every 100,000 Salem Media Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1410 shares are currently held short.

However Salem Media Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Salem Media Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Salem Media Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Salem Media Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Salem Media Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0428% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Salem Media Group shares, roughly 43 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 Salem Media Group.
