Is CyberOptics Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

CyberOptics Corporation's P/E ratio

CyberOptics Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 43x. In other words, CyberOptics Corporation shares trade at around 43x 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.

CyberOptics Corporation's PEG ratio

CyberOptics Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 25.1. 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 CyberOptics Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

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

CyberOptics Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CyberOptics Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.61. In other words for every 100,000 CyberOptics Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2610 shares are currently held short.

However CyberOptics Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CyberOptics Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable CyberOptics Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CyberOptics Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CyberOptics Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0324% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CyberOptics Corporation shares, roughly 32 shares are currently held short).
