Valuing Applied Optoelectronics stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Applied Optoelectronics's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Applied Optoelectronics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.51. 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 Applied Optoelectronics's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 4.2 million Applied Optoelectronics shares held short by investors – that's known as Applied Optoelectronics's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% down from 4.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Applied Optoelectronics shares can be evaluated.
Applied Optoelectronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Applied Optoelectronics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Applied Optoelectronics shares traded daily (recently around 637437.89473684). Applied Optoelectronics's SIR currently stands at 6.65. In other words for every 100,000 Applied Optoelectronics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6650 shares are currently held short.
However Applied Optoelectronics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Applied Optoelectronics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Applied Optoelectronics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Applied Optoelectronics's short interest could be expressed as 0.19% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Applied Optoelectronics shares in existence, roughly 190 shares are currently held short) or 0.2575% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Applied Optoelectronics shares, roughly 258 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 Applied Optoelectronics.

We're not expecting Applied Optoelectronics to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Applied Optoelectronics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5 up to $17.57. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Applied Optoelectronics's is 1.8325. This would suggest that Applied Optoelectronics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
