Is TransGlobe Energy Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's P/E ratio

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2x. In other words, TransGlobe Energy Corporation shares trade at around 2x 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.

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's PEG ratio

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.35. 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 TransGlobe Energy Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's EBITDA

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$30.2 million.

Shorting TransGlobe Energy Corporation shares

There are currently 93,257 TransGlobe Energy Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as TransGlobe Energy Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 10.2% down from 103,848 last month.

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

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TransGlobe Energy Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TransGlobe Energy Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 4.7 million). TransGlobe Energy Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.02. In other words for every 100,000 TransGlobe Energy Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 20 shares are currently held short.

However TransGlobe Energy Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TransGlobe Energy Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable TransGlobe Energy Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TransGlobe Energy Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TransGlobe Energy Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0004% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TransGlobe Energy Corporation 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 TransGlobe Energy Corporation.
