Is Tata Motors under- or over-valued?

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

Tata Motors's P/E ratio

Tata Motors's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Tata Motors shares trade at around 9x 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.

Shorting Tata Motors shares

There are currently 4.7 million Tata Motors shares held short by investors – that's known as Tata Motors's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% up from 4.7 million last month.

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

Tata Motors's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tata Motors's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tata Motors shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tata Motors shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Tata Motors's SIR currently stands at 2.89. In other words for every 100,000 Tata Motors shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2890 shares are currently held short.

However Tata Motors's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tata Motors shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tata Motors shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tata Motors's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tata Motors shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tata Motors shares, roughly 0 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 Tata Motors.
