Is Osprey 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

Osprey's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 869x. In other words, Osprey shares trade at around 869x 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.

However, Osprey's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the shell companies industry or those of similar companies.

How to short and sell Osprey shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "SFTW.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 813,105 Osprey shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 1059.1% up from 70,151 last month.

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

Short interest ratio (SIR)

Osprey's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Osprey shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Osprey shares traded daily (recently around 5.1 million). Osprey's SIR currently stands at 0.16. In other words for every 100,000 Osprey shares traded daily on the market, roughly 160 shares are currently held short.

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

However Osprey's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Osprey shares, or, against the total number of tradable Osprey shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Osprey's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Osprey shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0257% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Osprey shares, roughly 26 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 Osprey.
