Is Bruker Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Bruker Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Bruker Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Bruker Corporation's P/E ratio
Bruker Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 62x. In other words, Bruker Corporation shares trade at around 62x 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.
Bruker Corporation's PEG ratio
Bruker Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.64. 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 Bruker Corporation'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 Bruker Corporation shares
There are currently 1.7 million Bruker Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Bruker Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 11.7% up from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bruker Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Bruker Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Bruker Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bruker Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bruker Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 967109.4972067). Bruker Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.79. In other words for every 100,000 Bruker Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1790 shares are currently held short.
However Bruker Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bruker Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bruker Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bruker Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bruker Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.017% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bruker Corporation shares, roughly 17 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 Bruker Corporation.

Bruker Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 12.03% of net profits
Recently Bruker Corporation has paid out, on average, around 12.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bruker Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bruker Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.16 per share.
While Bruker Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Bruker Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Bruker Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 17 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Bruker Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Bruker Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.1948 up to $81.63. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Bruker Corporation's is 1.2856. This would suggest that Bruker Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
