Is Avid Technology under- or over-valued?
Valuing Avid Technology stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Avid Technology's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Avid Technology's P/E ratio
Avid Technology's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 77x. In other words, Avid Technology shares trade at around 77x 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.
Avid Technology's PEG ratio
Avid Technology's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.91. 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 Avid Technology's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Avid Technology's EBITDA

Shorting Avid Technology shares
There are currently 1.4 million Avid Technology shares held short by investors – that's known as Avid Technology's "short interest". This figure is 6.3% down from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Avid Technology shares can be evaluated.
Avid Technology's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Avid Technology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Avid Technology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Avid Technology shares traded daily (recently around 506973.91304348). Avid Technology's SIR currently stands at 2.76. In other words for every 100,000 Avid Technology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2760 shares are currently held short.
However Avid Technology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Avid Technology shares, or, against the total number of tradable Avid Technology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Avid Technology's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Avid Technology shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0401% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avid Technology shares, roughly 40 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 Avid Technology.
