Is Tiptree under- or over-valued?

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

Tiptree's P/E ratio

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

Tiptree's EBITDA

Tiptree's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$39.9 million.

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

Shorting Tiptree shares

There are currently 279,982 Tiptree shares held short by investors – that's known as Tiptree's "short interest". This figure is 3% down from 288,634 last month.

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

Tiptree's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tiptree's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tiptree shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tiptree shares traded daily (recently around 57609.465020576). Tiptree's SIR currently stands at 4.86. In other words for every 100,000 Tiptree shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4860 shares are currently held short.

However Tiptree's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tiptree shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tiptree shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tiptree's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tiptree shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0109% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tiptree shares, roughly 11 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 Tiptree.

We're not expecting Tiptree to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Tiptree's shares ever split?

Tiptree's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 14 September 2010. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Tiptree shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tiptree shares which in turn could have impacted Tiptree's share price.

Tiptree share price volatility

TIPT.US volatility(beta: 0.62)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 Tiptree's is 0.621. This would suggest that Tiptree's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
