Is Immersion Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Immersion Corporation's P/E ratio

Immersion 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 17x. In other words, Immersion Corporation shares trade at around 17x 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 Immersion Corporation shares

There are currently 1.1 million Immersion Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Immersion Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 31.4% down from 1.6 million last month.

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

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

Immersion Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Immersion Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Immersion Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 584428.57142857). Immersion Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.89. In other words for every 100,000 Immersion Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1890 shares are currently held short.

However Immersion Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Immersion Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Immersion Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Immersion Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Immersion Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.049% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Immersion Corporation shares, roughly 49 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 Immersion Corporation.
