Is Eltek under- or over-valued?

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

Eltek's P/E ratio

Eltek's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Eltek shares trade at around 11x 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.

Eltek's EBITDA

Eltek's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$4 million.

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

Shorting Eltek shares

There are currently 2,804 Eltek shares held short by investors – that's known as Eltek's "short interest". This figure is 49.7% down from 5,575 last month.

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

Eltek's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Eltek's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Eltek shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Eltek shares traded daily (recently around 40057.142857143). Eltek's SIR currently stands at 0.07. In other words for every 100,000 Eltek shares traded daily on the market, roughly 70 shares are currently held short.

However Eltek's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Eltek shares, or, against the total number of tradable Eltek shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Eltek's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Eltek shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0009% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Eltek 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 Eltek.

Eltek share dividends

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

Have Eltek's shares ever split?

Eltek's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 22 November 2017. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Eltek shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Eltek shares which in turn could have impacted Eltek's share price.

Eltek share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Eltek's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.28 up to $8.12. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Eltek's is -2.7172. This would suggest that Eltek's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Eltek has bucked the trend.
