Is FireEye under- or over-valued?

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

FireEye's PEG ratio

FireEye's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0787. 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 FireEye'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 FireEye shares

There are currently 23.8 million FireEye shares held short by investors – that's known as FireEye's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% up from 23.4 million last month.

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

FireEye's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

FireEye's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FireEye shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FireEye shares traded daily (recently around 3.2 million). FireEye's SIR currently stands at 7.4. In other words for every 100,000 FireEye shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7400 shares are currently held short.

However FireEye's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FireEye shares, or, against the total number of tradable FireEye shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FireEye's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FireEye shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1078% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FireEye shares, roughly 108 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 FireEye.

FireEye share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, FireEye's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.54 up to $18.34. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FEYE.US volatility(beta: 1.08)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 FireEye's is 1.0778. This would suggest that FireEye's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
