Is TopBuild under- or over-valued?

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

TopBuild's P/E ratio

TopBuild's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, TopBuild shares trade at around 30x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Shorting TopBuild shares

There are currently 1.0 million TopBuild shares held short by investors – that's known as TopBuild's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% up from 973,559 last month.

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

TopBuild's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TopBuild's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TopBuild shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TopBuild shares traded daily (recently around 284161.93181818). TopBuild's SIR currently stands at 3.52. In other words for every 100,000 TopBuild shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3520 shares are currently held short.

However TopBuild's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TopBuild shares, or, against the total number of tradable TopBuild shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TopBuild's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TopBuild shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0347% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TopBuild shares, roughly 35 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 TopBuild.

BLD.US volatility(beta: 1.55)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 TopBuild's is 1.5461. This would suggest that TopBuild's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
