Is Knowles Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Knowles Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Knowles Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Knowles Corporation's P/E ratio
Knowles 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 65x. In other words, Knowles Corporation shares trade at around 65x 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.
Knowles Corporation's PEG ratio
Knowles Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.12. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Knowles Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Knowles Corporation's EBITDA

Shorting Knowles Corporation shares
There are currently 6.2 million Knowles Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Knowles Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 10.6% down from 7.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Knowles Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Knowles Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Knowles Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Knowles Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Knowles Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 715758.1797235). Knowles Corporation's SIR currently stands at 8.68. In other words for every 100,000 Knowles Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8680 shares are currently held short.
However Knowles Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Knowles Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Knowles Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Knowles Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Knowles Corporation shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0677% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Knowles Corporation shares, roughly 68 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Knowles Corporation.
