Is Altice USA under- or over-valued?

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

Altice USA's P/E ratio

Altice USA's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Altice USA stocks trade at around 26x 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 stocks or simply that they're under-valued.

Altice USA's PEG ratio

Altice USA's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4633. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Altice USA's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.


Altice USA's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$4.3 billion.

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

  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "ATUS.US"

There are currently 43.6 million Altice USA stocks held short by investors – that's known as Altice USA's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% up from 43.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Altice USA stocks can be evaluated.

Altice USA's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Altice USA's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Altice USA stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Altice USA stocks traded daily (recently around 3.7 million). Altice USA's SIR currently stands at 11.75. In other words for every 100,000 Altice USA stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 11750 stocks are currently held short.

However Altice USA's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Altice USA stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Altice USA stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Altice USA's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Altice USA stocks in existence, roughly 90 stocks are currently held short) or 0.2512% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Altice USA stocks, roughly 251 stocks are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the stock price and a discouraging interest in betting against Altice USA.
