Is Cree under- or over-valued?
Valuing Cree stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cree's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cree's PEG ratio
Cree's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.32. 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 Cree's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Cree's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $9.3 million.

Shorting Cree shares
There are currently 12.9 million Cree shares held short by investors – that's known as Cree's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% up from 12.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cree shares can be evaluated.
Cree's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Cree's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cree shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cree shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Cree's SIR currently stands at 11.54. In other words for every 100,000 Cree shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11540 shares are currently held short.
However Cree's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cree shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cree shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cree's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cree shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1118% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cree shares, roughly 112 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 Cree.

Cree share dividends
We're not expecting Cree to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Cree's shares ever split?
Cree's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 10 December 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cree shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cree shares which in turn could have impacted Cree's share price.
Cree share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Cree's shares have ranged in value from as little as $56.39 up to $129.9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Cree's is 1.5087. This would suggest that Cree's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
