Is Smart Sand under- or over-valued?

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

Smart Sand's P/E ratio

Smart Sand's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2x. In other words, Smart Sand shares trade at around 2x 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.

Smart Sand's PEG ratio

Smart Sand's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.15. 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 Smart Sand's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Smart Sand's EBITDA

Smart Sand's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$42.7 million.

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

Shorting Smart Sand shares

There are currently 2.7 million Smart Sand shares held short by investors – that's known as Smart Sand's "short interest". This figure is 4.1% down from 2.8 million last month.

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

Smart Sand's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Smart Sand's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Smart Sand shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Smart Sand shares traded daily (recently around 472326.85512367). Smart Sand's SIR currently stands at 5.66. In other words for every 100,000 Smart Sand shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5660 shares are currently held short.

However Smart Sand's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Smart Sand shares, or, against the total number of tradable Smart Sand shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Smart Sand's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Smart Sand shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.132% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Smart Sand shares, roughly 132 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 Smart Sand.

Have Smart Sand's shares ever split?

Smart Sand's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 2 September 2011. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Smart Sand shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Smart Sand shares which in turn could have impacted Smart Sand's share price.

Smart Sand share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Smart Sand's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.5501 up to $2.68. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Smart Sand's is 2.1178. This would suggest that Smart Sand's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
