Is Verso Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Verso Corporation's P/E ratio

Verso 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 3x. In other words, Verso Corporation shares trade at around 3x 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.

Verso Corporation's EBITDA

Verso Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $57 million.

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

Shorting Verso Corporation shares

There are currently 456,826 Verso Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Verso Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 20% down from 571,284 last month.

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

Verso Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Verso Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Verso Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Verso Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 304550.66666667). Verso Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.5. In other words for every 100,000 Verso Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1500 shares are currently held short.

However Verso Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Verso Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Verso Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Verso Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Verso Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0141% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Verso Corporation shares, roughly 14 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 Verso Corporation.
