Is Ambarella under- or over-valued?

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

Ambarella's PEG ratio

Ambarella's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 11.507. 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.

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

Shorting Ambarella shares

There are currently 1.6 million Ambarella shares held short by investors – that's known as Ambarella's "short interest". This figure is 12.9% down from 1.9 million last month.

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

Ambarella's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ambarella's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ambarella shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ambarella shares traded daily (recently around 468862.5). Ambarella's SIR currently stands at 3.44. In other words for every 100,000 Ambarella shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3440 shares are currently held short.

However Ambarella's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ambarella shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ambarella shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ambarella's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ambarella shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0465% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ambarella shares, roughly 47 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 Ambarella.

Ambarella share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ambarella's shares have ranged in value from as little as $43.69 up to $137.2099. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMBA.US volatility(beta: 1.42)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Ambarella's is 1.4159. This would suggest that Ambarella's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
