Is it a good time to buy Kodak stock?

Is Kodak under- or over-valued?

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

Kodak's P/E ratio

Kodak's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Kodak shares trade at around 1x 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.

Kodak's EBITDA

Kodak's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $98 million (£0.0 million).

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

Shorting Kodak shares

There are currently 1.7 million Kodak shares held short by investors – that's known as Kodak's "short interest". This figure is 44.3% up from 1.2 million last month.

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

Kodak's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kodak's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kodak shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kodak shares traded daily (recently around 274251.20385233). Kodak's SIR currently stands at 6.23. In other words for every 100,000 Kodak shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6230 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Kodak's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Kodak's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kodak shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kodak shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kodak's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kodak shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.1412% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kodak shares, roughly 141 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Kodak.

Kodak share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kodak's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.5 up to $4.775. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Kodak's is 2.5854. This would suggest that Kodak's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
