Is Aspen Group under- or over-valued?

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

Aspen Group's PEG ratio

Aspen Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3861. 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 Aspen Group'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 Aspen Group shares

There are currently 1.0 million Aspen Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Aspen Group's "short interest". This figure is 18.1% up from 850,084 last month.

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

Aspen Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Aspen Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aspen Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aspen Group shares traded daily (recently around 308979.38461538). Aspen Group's SIR currently stands at 3.25. In other words for every 100,000 Aspen Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3250 shares are currently held short.

However Aspen Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aspen Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aspen Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aspen Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aspen Group shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0425% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aspen Group shares, roughly 43 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 Aspen Group.

Aspen Group share dividends

We're not expecting Aspen Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Aspen Group's shares ever split?

Aspen Group's shares were split on a 1:12 basis on 9 January 2017. So if you had owned 12 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Aspen Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aspen Group shares which in turn could have impacted Aspen Group's share price.

Aspen Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Aspen Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.74 up to $13.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ASPU.US volatility(beta: 0.74)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 Aspen Group's is 0.7419. This would suggest that Aspen Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
