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 46x. In other words, SPAR Group shares trade at around 46x 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.

Shorting SPAR Group shares

There are currently 9,587 SPAR Group shares held short by investors – that's known as SPAR Group's "short interest". This figure is 78.2% down from 44,016 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 239675). SPAR Group's SIR currently stands at 0.04. In other words for every 100,000 SPAR Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 40 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.
