Is AudioCodes under- or over-valued?

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

AudioCodes's P/E ratio

AudioCodes's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 33x. In other words, AudioCodes shares trade at around 33x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

AudioCodes's PEG ratio

AudioCodes's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.83. 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 AudioCodes's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

AudioCodes's EBITDA

AudioCodes's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $45.9 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a AudioCodes's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting AudioCodes shares

There are currently 909,561 AudioCodes shares held short by investors – that's known as AudioCodes's "short interest". This figure is 7.4% up from 846,711 last month.

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

AudioCodes's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AudioCodes's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AudioCodes shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AudioCodes shares traded daily (recently around 124768.3127572). AudioCodes's SIR currently stands at 7.29. In other words for every 100,000 AudioCodes shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7290 shares are currently held short.

However AudioCodes's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AudioCodes shares, or, against the total number of tradable AudioCodes shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AudioCodes's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AudioCodes shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0358% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AudioCodes shares, roughly 36 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 AudioCodes.

AudioCodes share dividends

30%

Dividend payout ratio: 30.13% of net profits

Recently AudioCodes has paid out, on average, around 30.13% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AudioCodes shareholders could enjoy a 1.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AudioCodes's case, that would currently equate to about $0.33 per share.

While AudioCodes's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that AudioCodes may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

AudioCodes's most recent dividend payout was on 25 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AudioCodes's shares ever split?

AudioCodes's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 October 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AudioCodes shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AudioCodes shares which in turn could have impacted AudioCodes's share price.

AudioCodes share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AudioCodes's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.9 up to $37.5535. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AUDC.US volatility(beta: 0.56)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 AudioCodes's is 0.5571. This would suggest that AudioCodes's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
