Is EchoStar Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing EchoStar Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of EchoStar Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
EchoStar Corporation's P/E ratio
EchoStar 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 23x. In other words, EchoStar Corporation shares trade at around 23x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
EchoStar Corporation's PEG ratio
EchoStar Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 13.41. 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 EchoStar 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.
EchoStar Corporation's EBITDA

Shorting EchoStar Corporation shares
There are currently 7.2 million EchoStar Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as EchoStar Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.8% up from 7.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting EchoStar Corporation shares can be evaluated.
EchoStar Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
EchoStar Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of EchoStar Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of EchoStar Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 859135.58718861). EchoStar Corporation's SIR currently stands at 8.43. In other words for every 100,000 EchoStar Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8430 shares are currently held short.
However EchoStar Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of EchoStar Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable EchoStar Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case EchoStar Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 EchoStar Corporation shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1789% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable EchoStar Corporation shares, roughly 179 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 EchoStar Corporation.
