Is Southwestern Energy Company under- or over-valued?

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

Southwestern Energy Company's P/E ratio

Southwestern Energy Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Southwestern Energy Company shares trade at around 1x 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.

Southwestern Energy Company's PEG ratio

Southwestern Energy Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4878. 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 Southwestern Energy Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Southwestern Energy Company's EBITDA

Southwestern Energy Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $599 million.

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

Shorting Southwestern Energy Company shares

There are currently 31.7 million Southwestern Energy Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Southwestern Energy Company's "short interest". This figure is 2.6% down from 32.6 million last month.

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

Southwestern Energy Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Southwestern Energy Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Southwestern Energy Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Southwestern Energy Company shares traded daily (recently around 17.7 million). Southwestern Energy Company's SIR currently stands at 1.79. In other words for every 100,000 Southwestern Energy Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1790 shares are currently held short.

However Southwestern Energy Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Southwestern Energy Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Southwestern Energy Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Southwestern Energy Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Southwestern Energy Company shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0655% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Southwestern Energy Company shares, roughly 66 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 Southwestern Energy Company.

Have Southwestern Energy Company's shares ever split?

Southwestern Energy Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 March 2008. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Southwestern Energy Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Southwestern Energy Company shares which in turn could have impacted Southwestern Energy Company's share price.

Southwestern Energy Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Southwestern Energy Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.18 up to $4.88. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SWN.US volatility(beta: 1.5)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 Southwestern Energy Company's is 1.5008. This would suggest that Southwestern Energy Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
