Is Coda Octopus Group under- or over-valued?

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

Coda Octopus Group's P/E ratio

Coda Octopus Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Coda Octopus Group shares trade at around 16x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Shorting Coda Octopus Group shares

There are currently 224,009 Coda Octopus Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Coda Octopus Group's "short interest". This figure is 2.6% down from 230,047 last month.

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

Coda Octopus Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Coda Octopus Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Coda Octopus Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Coda Octopus Group shares traded daily (recently around 13742.883435583). Coda Octopus Group's SIR currently stands at 16.3. In other words for every 100,000 Coda Octopus Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 16300 shares are currently held short.

However Coda Octopus Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Coda Octopus Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Coda Octopus Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Coda Octopus Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Coda Octopus Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0443% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Coda Octopus Group shares, roughly 44 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Coda Octopus Group.

Have Coda Octopus Group's shares ever split?

Coda Octopus Group's shares were split on a 1:14 basis on 10 January 2017. So if you had owned 14 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Coda Octopus Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Coda Octopus Group shares which in turn could have impacted Coda Octopus Group's share price.

Coda Octopus Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Coda Octopus Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.15 up to $10.17. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CODA.US volatility(beta: 1.56)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 Coda Octopus Group's is 1.5587. This would suggest that Coda Octopus Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
