Is Ferro Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Ferro Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ferro Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ferro Corporation's P/E ratio
Ferro 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 13x. In other words, Ferro Corporation shares trade at around 13x 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.
Ferro Corporation's PEG ratio
Ferro Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6421. 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 Ferro 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.
Ferro Corporation's EBITDA
Ferro Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $143.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Ferro Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Ferro Corporation shares
There are currently 6.1 million Ferro Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Ferro Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1% up from 6.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ferro Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Ferro Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Ferro Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ferro Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ferro Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 605680.81918082). Ferro Corporation's SIR currently stands at 10.01. In other words for every 100,000 Ferro Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10010 shares are currently held short.
However Ferro Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ferro Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ferro Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ferro Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ferro Corporation shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0793% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ferro Corporation shares, roughly 79 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Ferro Corporation.

Ferro Corporation share dividends
We're not expecting Ferro Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Ferro Corporation's shares ever split?
Ferro Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 December 1997. 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 Ferro Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ferro Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Ferro Corporation's share price.
Ferro Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Ferro Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.33 up to $21.83. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Ferro Corporation's is 1.5435. This would suggest that Ferro 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).
