Valuing 3D Systems Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of 3D Systems Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

3D Systems Corporation's PEG ratio

3D Systems Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.98. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

Shorting 3D Systems Corporation shares

There are currently 34.3 million 3D Systems Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as 3D Systems Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 11% down from 38.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting 3D Systems Corporation shares can be evaluated.

3D Systems Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

3D Systems Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of 3D Systems Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of 3D Systems Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 3.2 million). 3D Systems Corporation's SIR currently stands at 10.86. In other words for every 100,000 3D Systems Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10860 shares are currently held short.

However 3D Systems Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of 3D Systems Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable 3D Systems Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case 3D Systems Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.28% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 3D Systems Corporation shares in existence, roughly 280 shares are currently held short) or 0.3872% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable 3D Systems Corporation shares, roughly 387 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 3D Systems Corporation.

We're not expecting 3D Systems Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have 3D Systems Corporation's shares ever split?

3D Systems Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 25 February 2013. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your 3D Systems Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for 3D Systems Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted 3D Systems Corporation's share price.

3D Systems Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, 3D Systems Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.6 up to $12.765. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DDD.US volatility(beta: 1.96)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 3D Systems Corporation's is 1.958. This would suggest that 3D Systems Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
