Is Vermilion Energy under- or over-valued?

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

Vermilion Energy's P/E ratio

Vermilion Energy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Vermilion Energy shares trade at around 5x 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.

Vermilion Energy's PEG ratio

Vermilion Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.58. 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 Vermilion Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Vermilion Energy's EBITDA

Vermilion Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $411.2 million.

Shorting Vermilion Energy shares

There are currently 4.8 million Vermilion Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Vermilion Energy's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% down from 4.9 million last month.

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

Vermilion Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Vermilion Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vermilion Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vermilion Energy shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). Vermilion Energy's SIR currently stands at 2.56. In other words for every 100,000 Vermilion Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2560 shares are currently held short.

However Vermilion Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vermilion Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vermilion Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vermilion Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vermilion Energy shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0306% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vermilion Energy shares, roughly 31 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 Vermilion Energy.
