Is IDT Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

IDT Corporation's P/E ratio

IDT 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, IDT 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.

IDT Corporation's EBITDA

IDT Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $59.4 million.

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

Shorting IDT Corporation shares

There are currently 693,773 IDT Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as IDT Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% up from 670,251 last month.

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

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

IDT Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IDT Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IDT Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 199360.05747126). IDT Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.48. In other words for every 100,000 IDT Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3480 shares are currently held short.

However IDT Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IDT Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable IDT Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IDT Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IDT Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0684% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IDT Corporation shares, roughly 68 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 IDT Corporation.

Have IDT Corporation's shares ever split?

IDT Corporation's shares were split on a 1183:1000 basis on 31 July 2013. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1183 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your IDT Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 15.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for IDT Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted IDT Corporation's share price.

IDT Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, IDT Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.95 up to $52.58. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IDT.US volatility(beta: 1.21)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while IDT Corporation's is 1.2073. This would suggest that IDT 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).
