Is Weyco Group under- or over-valued?

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

Weyco Group's P/E ratio

Weyco Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Weyco Group shares trade at around 21x 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.

Weyco Group's EBITDA

Weyco Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$12.6 million.

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

Shorting Weyco Group shares

There are currently 40,732 Weyco Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Weyco Group's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% down from 43,519 last month.

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

Weyco Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Weyco Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Weyco Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Weyco Group shares traded daily (recently around 11190.10989011). Weyco Group's SIR currently stands at 3.64. In other words for every 100,000 Weyco Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3640 shares are currently held short.

However Weyco Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Weyco Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Weyco Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Weyco Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Weyco Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0068% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Weyco Group shares, roughly 7 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 Weyco Group.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Weyco Group shares which in turn could have impacted Weyco Group's share price.
