Is SPAR Group under- or over-valued?

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

SPAR Group's P/E ratio

SPAR 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 7x. In other words, SPAR Group shares trade at around 7x 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.

SPAR Group's EBITDA

SPAR Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $11.8 million.

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

Shorting SPAR Group shares

There are currently 8,606 SPAR Group shares held short by investors – that's known as SPAR Group's "short interest". This figure is 83.4% down from 51,915 last month.

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

SPAR Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SPAR Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SPAR Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SPAR Group shares traded daily (recently around 286866.66666667). SPAR Group's SIR currently stands at 0.03. In other words for every 100,000 SPAR Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 30 shares are currently held short.

However SPAR Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SPAR Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable SPAR Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SPAR Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SPAR Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.001% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SPAR Group shares, roughly 1 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 SPAR Group.

SGRP.US volatility(beta: 1.39)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while SPAR Group's is 1.3878. This would suggest that SPAR Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
