Is MasTec under- or over-valued?

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

MasTec's P/E ratio

MasTec's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, MasTec stocks trade at around 17x 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.

MasTec's PEG ratio

MasTec's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.99. 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 MasTec's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

MasTec's EBITDA

MasTec's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$874.5 million.

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

How to short and sell MasTec stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "MTZ.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 3.1 million MasTec stocks held short by investors – that's known as MasTec's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% up from 2.9 million last month.

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

MasTec's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MasTec's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MasTec stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MasTec stocks traded daily (recently around 737600.96385542). MasTec's SIR currently stands at 4.15. In other words for every 100,000 MasTec stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4150 stocks are currently held short.

However MasTec's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MasTec stocks, or, against the total number of tradable MasTec stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MasTec's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 MasTec stocks in existence, roughly 40 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0545% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable MasTec stocks, roughly 55 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against MasTec.

Have MasTec stocks ever split?

MasTec stocks were split on a 3:2 basis on 20 June 2000. 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 MasTec stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for MasTec stocks which in turn could have impacted MasTec's stock price.

MasTec stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, MasTec's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $40.18 up to $122.33. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MTZ.US volatility(beta: 1.29)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while MasTec's is 1.2898. This would suggest that MasTec's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
