Is NMI under- or over-valued?

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

NMI's P/E ratio

NMI's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, NMI shares trade at around 11x 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.

NMI's PEG ratio

NMI's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.66. 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 NMI's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


NMI's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$249.5 million.

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

How to short and sell NMI shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "NMIH.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 1.7 million NMI shares held short by investors – that's known as NMI's "short interest". This figure is 26.4% down from 2.3 million last month.

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

NMI's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NMI's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NMI shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NMI shares traded daily (recently around 926768.68131868). NMI's SIR currently stands at 1.82. In other words for every 100,000 NMI shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1820 shares are currently held short.

However NMI's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NMI shares, or, against the total number of tradable NMI shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NMI's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NMI shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0235% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NMI shares, roughly 24 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 NMI.

NMI share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, NMI's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.15 up to $26.13. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NMIH.US volatility(beta: 1.69)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 NMI's is 1.6944. This would suggest that NMI's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
