Is CSP under- or over-valued?

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

CSP's P/E ratio

CSP's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 382x. In other words, CSP shares trade at around 382x 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 CSP shares

There are currently 3,550 CSP shares held short by investors – that's known as CSP's "short interest". This figure is 64.3% down from 9,942 last month.

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

CSP's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CSP's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CSP shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CSP shares traded daily (recently around 6698.1132075472). CSP's SIR currently stands at 0.53. In other words for every 100,000 CSP shares traded daily on the market, roughly 530 shares are currently held short.

However CSP's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CSP shares, or, against the total number of tradable CSP shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CSP's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CSP shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0012% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CSP 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 CSP.

CSP share dividends

We're not expecting CSP to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have CSP's shares ever split?

CSP's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 18 April 1999. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CSP shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CSP shares which in turn could have impacted CSP's share price.

CSP share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CSP's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.95 up to $14.33. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CSPI.US volatility(beta: 1.79)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 CSP's is 1.7933. This would suggest that CSP's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
