Is Box under- or over-valued?

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

Box's PEG ratio

Box's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.2357. 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 Box'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 Box shares

There are currently 13.3 million Box shares held short by investors – that's known as Box's "short interest". This figure is 5.3% up from 12.6 million last month.

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

Box's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Box's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Box shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Box shares traded daily (recently around 2.9 million). Box's SIR currently stands at 4.5. In other words for every 100,000 Box shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4500 shares are currently held short.

However Box's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Box shares, or, against the total number of tradable Box shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Box's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Box shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.093% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Box shares, roughly 93 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 Box.

Box share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Box's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.075 up to $27.407. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BOX.US volatility(beta: 1.41)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Box's is 1.4141. This would suggest that Box's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
