Is Vectrus under- or over-valued?

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

Vectrus's P/E ratio

Vectrus's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Vectrus shares trade at around 17x 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.

Vectrus's EBITDA

Vectrus's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $55.8 million.

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

Shorting Vectrus shares

There are currently 286,523 Vectrus shares held short by investors – that's known as Vectrus's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% up from 275,887 last month.

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

Vectrus's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Vectrus's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vectrus shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vectrus shares traded daily (recently around 78715.10989011). Vectrus's SIR currently stands at 3.64. In other words for every 100,000 Vectrus shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3640 shares are currently held short.

However Vectrus's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vectrus shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vectrus shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vectrus's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vectrus shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0251% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vectrus shares, roughly 25 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 Vectrus.

VEC.US volatility(beta: 1.52)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 Vectrus's is 1.5168. This would suggest that Vectrus's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
