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 52x. In other words, Avid Technology shares trade at around 52x 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

Avid Technology's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $54.7 million.

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

Shorting Avid Technology shares

There are currently 1.5 million Avid Technology shares held short by investors – that's known as Avid Technology's "short interest". This figure is 5.2% up from 1.4 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 506478.33333333). Avid Technology's SIR currently stands at 3. In other words for every 100,000 Avid Technology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3000 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 0.0429% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avid Technology 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 Avid Technology.

AVID.US volatility(beta: 1.27)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 Avid Technology's is 1.2709. This would suggest that Avid Technology's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
