Is Velocity Financial under- or over-valued?

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

Velocity Financial's P/E ratio

Velocity Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Velocity Financial shares trade at around 13x 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.

Shorting Velocity Financial shares

There are currently 145,454 Velocity Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Velocity Financial's "short interest". This figure is 10.1% down from 161,859 last month.

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

Velocity Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Velocity Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Velocity Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Velocity Financial shares traded daily (recently around 11777.651821862). Velocity Financial's SIR currently stands at 12.35. In other words for every 100,000 Velocity Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12350 shares are currently held short.

However Velocity Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Velocity Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Velocity Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Velocity Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Velocity Financial shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0333% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Velocity Financial shares, roughly 33 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Velocity Financial.
