Is Camtek under- or over-valued?
Valuing Camtek stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Camtek's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Camtek's P/E ratio
Camtek's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 48x. In other words, Camtek shares trade at around 48x 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.
Camtek's PEG ratio
Camtek's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.98. 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 Camtek's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Camtek's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $34.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Camtek's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Camtek shares
There are currently 372,962 Camtek shares held short by investors – that's known as Camtek's "short interest". This figure is 16.2% up from 320,854 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Camtek shares can be evaluated.
Camtek's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Camtek's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Camtek shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Camtek shares traded daily (recently around 220687.5739645). Camtek's SIR currently stands at 1.69. In other words for every 100,000 Camtek shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1690 shares are currently held short.
However Camtek's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Camtek shares, or, against the total number of tradable Camtek shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Camtek's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Camtek shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0141% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Camtek shares, roughly 14 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 Camtek.
