Is it a good time to buy Advanced Disposal Services stock?

It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Advanced Disposal Services under- or over-valued?

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

P/E ratio

Advanced Disposal Services's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10100x. In other words, Advanced Disposal Services shares trade at around 10100x 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.

PEG ratio

Advanced Disposal Services's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.66. A PEG ratio over 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares are overvalued at the current rate of growth, or may anticipate an acceleration in growth.

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

EBITDA

Advanced Disposal Services's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $400.2 million (£0.0 million).

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

There are currently 11.6 million Advanced Disposal Services shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 0.9% up from 11.5 million last month.

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

Short interest ratio (SIR)

Advanced Disposal Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Advanced Disposal Services shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Advanced Disposal Services shares traded daily (recently around 653113.2361189). Advanced Disposal Services's SIR currently stands at 17.83. In other words for every 100,000 Advanced Disposal Services shares traded daily on the market, roughly 17830 shares are currently held short.

However Advanced Disposal Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Advanced Disposal Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable Advanced Disposal Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Advanced Disposal Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Advanced Disposal Services shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1579% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Advanced Disposal Services shares, roughly 158 shares are currently held short).

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