Is Tecnoglass under- or over-valued?

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

Tecnoglass's P/E ratio

Tecnoglass's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Tecnoglass shares trade at around 19x 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.

Tecnoglass's PEG ratio

Tecnoglass's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4185. 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 Tecnoglass's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Tecnoglass's EBITDA

Tecnoglass's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $85.4 million.

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

Shorting Tecnoglass shares

There are currently 152,727 Tecnoglass shares held short by investors – that's known as Tecnoglass's "short interest". This figure is 12.9% down from 175,341 last month.

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

Tecnoglass's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tecnoglass's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tecnoglass shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tecnoglass shares traded daily (recently around 56565.555555556). Tecnoglass's SIR currently stands at 2.7. In other words for every 100,000 Tecnoglass shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2700 shares are currently held short.

However Tecnoglass's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tecnoglass shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tecnoglass shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tecnoglass's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tecnoglass shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0071% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tecnoglass shares, roughly 7 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 Tecnoglass.

Tecnoglass share dividends

14%

Dividend payout ratio: 13.75% of net profits

Recently Tecnoglass has paid out, on average, around 13.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tecnoglass shareholders could enjoy a 1.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tecnoglass's case, that would currently equate to about $0.11 per share.

While Tecnoglass's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Tecnoglass is investing more in its future growth.

Tecnoglass's most recent dividend payout was on 28 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Tecnoglass share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Tecnoglass's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.1068 up to $9.9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TGLS.US volatility(beta: 1.65)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 Tecnoglass's is 1.6457. This would suggest that Tecnoglass's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
