Is Digi International under- or over-valued?

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.

Digi International's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Digi International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Digi International shares

There are currently 1.0 million Digi International shares held short by investors – that's known as Digi International's "short interest". This figure is 5.3% up from 986,957 last month.

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

Digi International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Digi International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Digi International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Digi International shares traded daily (recently around 202192.21789883). Digi International's SIR currently stands at 5.14. In other words for every 100,000 Digi International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5140 shares are currently held short.

However Digi International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Digi International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Digi International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Digi International's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Digi International shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0425% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Digi International shares, roughly 43 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Digi International.

Have Digi International's shares ever split?

Digi International's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 April 1992. 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 Digi International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Digi International shares which in turn could have impacted Digi International's share price.

Digi International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Digi International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.18 up to $18.99. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DGII.US volatility(beta: 1.81)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 Digi International's is 1.8086. This would suggest that Digi International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
