Is Applied Optoelectronics under- or over-valued?
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 PEG ratio
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.

Shorting Applied Optoelectronics shares
There are currently 3.9 million Applied Optoelectronics shares held short by investors – that's known as Applied Optoelectronics's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% down from 3.9 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)
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 619917.01444623). Applied Optoelectronics's SIR currently stands at 6.23. In other words for every 100,000 Applied Optoelectronics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6230 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 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Applied Optoelectronics shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1502% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Applied Optoelectronics shares, roughly 150 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.
