Is Seacor under- or over-valued?

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

Seacor's P/E ratio

Seacor's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 36x. In other words, Seacor shares trade at around 36x 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.

Seacor's PEG ratio

Seacor's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.88. 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 Seacor's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Seacor's EBITDA

Seacor's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $92.5 million.

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

Shorting Seacor shares

There are currently 490,810 Seacor shares held short by investors – that's known as Seacor's "short interest". This figure is 32.7% down from 729,128 last month.

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

Seacor's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Seacor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Seacor shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Seacor shares traded daily (recently around 223095.45454545). Seacor's SIR currently stands at 2.2. In other words for every 100,000 Seacor shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2200 shares are currently held short.

However Seacor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Seacor shares, or, against the total number of tradable Seacor shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Seacor's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Seacor shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0299% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Seacor shares, roughly 30 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 Seacor.

Seacor share dividends

We're not expecting Seacor to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Seacor's shares ever split?

Seacor's shares were split on a 1034:1000 basis on 6 December 2017. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1034 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Seacor shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Seacor shares which in turn could have impacted Seacor's share price.

Seacor share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Seacor's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.61 up to $43.73. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CKH.US volatility(beta: 0.99)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Seacor's is 0.9879. This would suggest that Seacor's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
