Is EQT 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.

PEG ratio

EQT's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.56. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into EQT'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

EQT's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $1 billion (£0.0 million).

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

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

There are currently 13.8 million EQT shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 5.2% up from 13.1 million last month.

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

Short interest ratio (SIR)

EQT's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of EQT shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of EQT shares traded daily (recently around 4.7 million). EQT's SIR currently stands at 2.95. In other words for every 100,000 EQT shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2950 shares are currently held short.

However EQT's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of EQT shares, or, against the total number of tradable EQT shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case EQT's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 EQT shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0559% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable EQT shares, roughly 56 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 EQT.

Environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like EQT.

Total ESG risk score

EQT's total ESG risk: 43.6

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and EQT's overall score of 43.6 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 83rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like EQT is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Environmental score

EQT's environmental score: 26.44/100

EQT's environmental score of 26.44 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that EQT is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Social score

EQT's social score: 12.36/100

EQT's social score of 12.36 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that EQT is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Governance score

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. A high-profile company, EQT scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that EQT has managed to keep its nose clean.

Have EQT's shares ever split?

EQT's shares were split on a 1837:1000 basis on 12 November 2018. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1837 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your EQT shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 45.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for EQT shares which in turn could have impacted EQT's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, EQT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.515 up to $19.87. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EQT.US volatility(beta: 1.27)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while EQT's is 1.2653. This would suggest that EQT's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
