Is WideOpenWest under- or over-valued?

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

WideOpenWest's P/E ratio

WideOpenWest's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 52x. In other words, WideOpenWest shares trade at around 52x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

WideOpenWest's PEG ratio

WideOpenWest's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.19. 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 WideOpenWest's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

WideOpenWest's EBITDA

WideOpenWest's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $409.2 million.

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

Shorting WideOpenWest shares

There are currently 1.1 million WideOpenWest shares held short by investors – that's known as WideOpenWest's "short interest". This figure is 22.1% up from 920,567 last month.

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

WideOpenWest's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

WideOpenWest's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of WideOpenWest shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WideOpenWest shares traded daily (recently around 316601.97183099). WideOpenWest's SIR currently stands at 3.55. In other words for every 100,000 WideOpenWest shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3550 shares are currently held short.

However WideOpenWest's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WideOpenWest shares, or, against the total number of tradable WideOpenWest shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WideOpenWest's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WideOpenWest shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0217% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WideOpenWest shares, roughly 22 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 WideOpenWest.
