Is Axon Enterprise under- or over-valued?

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

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Axon Enterprise'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 Axon Enterprise shares

There are currently 3.3 million Axon Enterprise shares held short by investors – that's known as Axon Enterprise's "short interest". This figure is 12% down from 3.7 million last month.

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

Axon Enterprise's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Axon Enterprise's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Axon Enterprise shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Axon Enterprise shares traded daily (recently around 465364.96453901). Axon Enterprise's SIR currently stands at 7.05. In other words for every 100,000 Axon Enterprise shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7050 shares are currently held short.

However Axon Enterprise's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Axon Enterprise shares, or, against the total number of tradable Axon Enterprise shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Axon Enterprise's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Axon Enterprise shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0569% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Axon Enterprise shares, roughly 57 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 Axon Enterprise.
