Is Air T under- or over-valued?

Valuing Air T stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Air T's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Air T's P/E ratio

Air T's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 152x. In other words, Air T shares trade at around 152x 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.


Air T's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$3.1 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Air T's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

How to short and sell Air T shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "AIRT.US"

There are currently 12,758 Air T shares held short by investors – that's known as Air T's "short interest". This figure is 10.6% up from 11,532 last month.

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

Air T's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Air T's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Air T shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Air T shares traded daily (recently around 10904.273504274). Air T's SIR currently stands at 1.17. In other words for every 100,000 Air T shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1170 shares are currently held short.

However Air T's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Air T shares, or, against the total number of tradable Air T shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Air T's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Air T shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0107% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Air T shares, roughly 11 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 Air T.

Have Air T's shares ever split?

Air T's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 10 June 2019. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Air T shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Air T shares which in turn could have impacted Air T's share price.

Air T share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Air T's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.06 up to $34.4455. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AIRT.US volatility(beta: 1.51)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Air T's is 1.5135. This would suggest that Air T's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
