Is Vista Outdoor under- or over-valued?
Valuing Vista Outdoor stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vista Outdoor's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Vista Outdoor's P/E ratio
Vista Outdoor's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Vista Outdoor shares trade at around 10x 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.
Vista Outdoor's PEG ratio
Vista Outdoor's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.73. 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 Vista Outdoor's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

In this case Vista Outdoor's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vista Outdoor shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0415% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vista Outdoor shares, roughly 42 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 Vista Outdoor.
