Is The Royal Bank of Scotland Group under- or over-valued?

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

The Royal Bank of Scotland Group's P/E ratio

The Royal Bank of Scotland 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 24x. In other words, The Royal Bank of Scotland Group shares trade at around 24x 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.

The Royal Bank of Scotland Group's PEG ratio

The Royal Bank of Scotland Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4946. 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 The Royal Bank of Scotland 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.

Shorting The Royal Bank of Scotland Group shares

There are currently 3.4 million The Royal Bank of Scotland Group shares held short by investors – that's known as The Royal Bank of Scotland Group's "short interest". This figure is 35% down from 5.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting The Royal Bank of Scotland Group shares can be evaluated.

The Royal Bank of Scotland Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The Royal Bank of Scotland Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Royal Bank of Scotland Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Royal Bank of Scotland Group shares traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). The Royal Bank of Scotland Group's SIR currently stands at 1.31. In other words for every 100,000 The Royal Bank of Scotland Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1310 shares are currently held short.

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