Is Intellicheck under- or over-valued?

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

Intellicheck's P/E ratio

Intellicheck's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 294x. In other words, Intellicheck shares trade at around 294x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Shorting Intellicheck shares

There are currently 338,023 Intellicheck shares held short by investors – that's known as Intellicheck's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% up from 332,439 last month.

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

Intellicheck's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Intellicheck's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Intellicheck shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Intellicheck shares traded daily (recently around 188839.66480447). Intellicheck's SIR currently stands at 1.79. In other words for every 100,000 Intellicheck shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1790 shares are currently held short.

However Intellicheck's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Intellicheck shares, or, against the total number of tradable Intellicheck shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Intellicheck's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Intellicheck shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.022% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Intellicheck shares, roughly 22 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 Intellicheck.

Have Intellicheck's shares ever split?

Intellicheck's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 12 August 2014. So if you had owned 8 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 Intellicheck shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Intellicheck shares which in turn could have impacted Intellicheck's share price.

Intellicheck share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Intellicheck's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.4 up to $15.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IDN.US volatility(beta: 1.83)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 Intellicheck's is 1.8323. This would suggest that Intellicheck's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
