Is Calix under- or over-valued?

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

Calix's P/E ratio

Calix's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 42x. In other words, Calix shares trade at around 42x 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.

Calix's PEG ratio

Calix's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.736. 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 Calix's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Calix's EBITDA

Calix's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $104.1 million.

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

Shorting Calix shares

There are currently 2.7 million Calix shares held short by investors – that's known as Calix's "short interest". This figure is 8% up from 2.5 million last month.

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

Calix's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Calix's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Calix shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Calix shares traded daily (recently around 480481.32854578). Calix's SIR currently stands at 5.57. In other words for every 100,000 Calix shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5570 shares are currently held short.

However Calix's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Calix shares, or, against the total number of tradable Calix shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Calix's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Calix shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0489% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Calix shares, roughly 49 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 Calix.

Calix share price volatility

CALX.US volatility(beta: 1.47)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 Calix's is 1.4698. This would suggest that Calix's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
