Is Workhorse Group under- or over-valued?

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

Workhorse Group's P/E ratio

Workhorse 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 19x. In other words, Workhorse Group shares trade at around 19x 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.

Workhorse Group's EBITDA

Workhorse Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$282.9 million.

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

Shorting Workhorse Group shares

There are currently 29.6 million Workhorse Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Workhorse Group's "short interest". This figure is 5% up from 28.2 million last month.

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

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

Workhorse Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Workhorse Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Workhorse Group shares traded daily (recently around 32.2 million). Workhorse Group's SIR currently stands at 0.92. In other words for every 100,000 Workhorse Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 920 shares are currently held short.

However Workhorse Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Workhorse Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Workhorse Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Workhorse Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.24% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Workhorse Group shares in existence, roughly 240 shares are currently held short) or 0.2457% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Workhorse Group shares, roughly 246 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 Workhorse Group.

Have Workhorse Group's shares ever split?

Workhorse Group's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 10 December 2015. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Workhorse Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Workhorse Group shares which in turn could have impacted Workhorse Group's share price.

Workhorse Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Workhorse Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.88 up to $42.96. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Workhorse Group's is 2.7816. This would suggest that Workhorse Group's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
