Is StealthGas under- or over-valued?

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

StealthGas's P/E ratio

StealthGas's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, StealthGas shares trade at around 10x 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.

StealthGas's PEG ratio

StealthGas's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.82. 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 StealthGas's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

StealthGas's EBITDA

StealthGas's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $62.3 million.

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

Shorting StealthGas shares

There are currently 52,938 StealthGas shares held short by investors – that's known as StealthGas's "short interest". This figure is 103.6% up from 26,002 last month.

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

StealthGas's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

StealthGas's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of StealthGas shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of StealthGas shares traded daily (recently around 189064.28571429). StealthGas's SIR currently stands at 0.28. In other words for every 100,000 StealthGas shares traded daily on the market, roughly 280 shares are currently held short.

However StealthGas's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of StealthGas shares, or, against the total number of tradable StealthGas shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case StealthGas's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 StealthGas shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0025% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable StealthGas shares, roughly 3 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 StealthGas.

StealthGas share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, StealthGas's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.04 up to $3.32. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GASS.US volatility(beta: 1.56)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 StealthGas's is 1.5647. This would suggest that StealthGas's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
