Is FONAR Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

FONAR 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 16x. In other words, FONAR Corporation shares trade at around 16x 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.

Shorting FONAR Corporation shares

There are currently 126,630 FONAR Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as FONAR Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 19.7% up from 105,810 last month.

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

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

FONAR Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FONAR Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FONAR Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 35771.186440678). FONAR Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.54. In other words for every 100,000 FONAR Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3540 shares are currently held short.

However FONAR Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FONAR Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable FONAR Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FONAR Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FONAR Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0199% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FONAR Corporation shares, roughly 20 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 FONAR Corporation.

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

Have FONAR Corporation's shares ever split?

FONAR Corporation's shares were split on a 1:25 basis on 16 April 2007. So if you had owned 25 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 FONAR Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for FONAR Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted FONAR Corporation's share price.

FONAR Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, FONAR Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.74 up to $26.49. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FONR.US volatility(beta: 1.05)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 FONAR Corporation's is 1.0507. This would suggest that FONAR Corporation'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).
