Is Fluidigm Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Fluidigm Corporation's PEG ratio

Fluidigm Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3. 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 Fluidigm 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.

Shorting Fluidigm Corporation shares

There are currently 6.1 million Fluidigm Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Fluidigm Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 18.5% down from 7.5 million last month.

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

Fluidigm Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fluidigm Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fluidigm Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fluidigm Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Fluidigm Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.44. In other words for every 100,000 Fluidigm Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3440 shares are currently held short.

However Fluidigm Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fluidigm Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fluidigm Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fluidigm Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fluidigm Corporation shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0839% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fluidigm Corporation shares, roughly 84 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 Fluidigm Corporation.
