Is Cerence under- or over-valued?

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

Cerence's P/E ratio

Cerence's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 400x. In other words, Cerence shares trade at around 400x 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.

Shorting Cerence shares

There are currently 5.1 million Cerence shares held short by investors – that's known as Cerence's "short interest". This figure is 15.5% up from 4.4 million last month.

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

Cerence's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cerence's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cerence shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cerence shares traded daily (recently around 949713.27102804). Cerence's SIR currently stands at 5.35. In other words for every 100,000 Cerence shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5350 shares are currently held short.

However Cerence's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cerence shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cerence shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cerence's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cerence shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1367% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cerence shares, roughly 137 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 Cerence.
