Is OReilly Automotive under- or over-valued?

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

OReilly Automotive's P/E ratio

OReilly Automotive's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, OReilly Automotive stocks trade at around 23x 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.

OReilly Automotive's PEG ratio

OReilly Automotive's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.632. 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 OReilly Automotive's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

OReilly Automotive's EBITDA

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

OReilly Automotive's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

OReilly Automotive's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of OReilly Automotive stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of OReilly Automotive stocks traded daily (recently around 479292.17877095). OReilly Automotive's SIR currently stands at 1.79. In other words for every 100,000 OReilly Automotive stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1790 stocks are currently held short.

However OReilly Automotive's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of OReilly Automotive stocks, or, against the total number of tradable OReilly Automotive stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case OReilly Automotive's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 OReilly Automotive stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0125% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable OReilly Automotive stocks, roughly 13 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 OReilly Automotive.
