Is Autoscope Technologies Corporation under- or over-valued?

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 Autoscope Technologies Corporation shares

There are currently 64,850 Autoscope Technologies Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Autoscope Technologies Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 13.2% down from 74,731 last month.

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

Autoscope Technologies Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Autoscope Technologies Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Autoscope Technologies Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Autoscope Technologies Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 209193.5483871). Autoscope Technologies Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.31. In other words for every 100,000 Autoscope Technologies Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 310 shares are currently held short.

However Autoscope Technologies Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Autoscope Technologies Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Autoscope Technologies Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Autoscope Technologies Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Autoscope Technologies Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0228% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Autoscope Technologies Corporation shares, roughly 23 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 Autoscope Technologies Corporation.

Autoscope Technologies Corporation share dividends

24%

Dividend payout ratio: 24.47% of net profits

Recently Autoscope Technologies Corporation has paid out, on average, around 24.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Autoscope Technologies Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 7.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Autoscope Technologies Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.

While Autoscope Technologies Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Autoscope Technologies Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Autoscope Technologies Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 19 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Autoscope Technologies Corporation's shares ever split?

Autoscope Technologies Corporation's shares were split on a 6:5 basis on 12 April 2000. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 6 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Autoscope Technologies Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 16.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Autoscope Technologies Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Autoscope Technologies Corporation's share price.

Autoscope Technologies Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Autoscope Technologies Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.3496 up to $10.9356. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ISNS.US volatility(beta: 1.1)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

This would suggest that Autoscope Technologies 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).
