Is Textainer Group under- or over-valued?

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

Textainer Group's P/E ratio

Textainer 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 19x. In other words, Textainer Group 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.

Textainer Group's PEG ratio

Textainer Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 11.4. 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 Textainer Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Textainer Group's EBITDA

Textainer Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $484.2 million.

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

Shorting Textainer Group shares

There are currently 1.5 million Textainer Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Textainer Group's "short interest". This figure is 35.6% up from 1.1 million last month.

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

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

Textainer Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Textainer Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Textainer Group shares traded daily (recently around 702621.25603865). Textainer Group's SIR currently stands at 2.07. In other words for every 100,000 Textainer Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2070 shares are currently held short.

However Textainer Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Textainer Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Textainer Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Textainer Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Textainer Group shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0379% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Textainer Group shares, roughly 38 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 Textainer Group.

Have Textainer Group's shares ever split?

Textainer Group's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 25 March 2001. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Textainer Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Textainer Group shares which in turn could have impacted Textainer Group's share price.

Textainer Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Textainer Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.5 up to $29.17. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TGH.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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Textainer Group's is 1.5628. This would suggest that Textainer 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).
