Is ClearOne under- or over-valued?

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

ClearOne's PEG ratio

ClearOne's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.74. 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 ClearOne'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 ClearOne shares

There are currently 11,286 ClearOne shares held short by investors – that's known as ClearOne's "short interest". This figure is 88.3% down from 96,770 last month.

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

ClearOne's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ClearOne's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ClearOne shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ClearOne shares traded daily (recently around 225720). ClearOne's SIR currently stands at 0.05. In other words for every 100,000 ClearOne shares traded daily on the market, roughly 50 shares are currently held short.

However ClearOne's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ClearOne shares, or, against the total number of tradable ClearOne shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ClearOne's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ClearOne shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0013% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ClearOne shares, roughly 1 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 ClearOne.

ClearOne share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ClearOne's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.32 up to $3.5399. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CLRO.US volatility(beta: 1.01)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while ClearOne's is 1.0083. This would suggest that ClearOne's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
