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 38x. In other words, CyberOptics Corporation shares trade at around 38x 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.

CyberOptics Corporation's EBITDA

CyberOptics Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $9.6 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a CyberOptics Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting CyberOptics Corporation shares

There are currently 316,452 CyberOptics Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as CyberOptics Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7.4% up from 294,731 last month.

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 "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CyberOptics Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CyberOptics Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 81350.128534704). CyberOptics Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.89. In other words for every 100,000 CyberOptics Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3890 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 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CyberOptics Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.045% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CyberOptics Corporation shares, roughly 45 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 CyberOptics Corporation.

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

Have CyberOptics Corporation's shares ever split?

CyberOptics Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 15 June 2000. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CyberOptics Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CyberOptics Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted CyberOptics Corporation's share price.

CyberOptics Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CyberOptics Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.81 up to $43.48. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CYBE.US volatility(beta: 1.43)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 CyberOptics Corporation's is 1.4319. This would suggest that CyberOptics Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
