Is Materialise under- or over-valued?

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

Materialise's P/E ratio

Materialise's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 433x. In other words, Materialise shares trade at around 433x 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 Materialise shares

There are currently 682,648 Materialise shares held short by investors – that's known as Materialise's "short interest". This figure is 24.9% up from 546,521 last month.

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

Materialise's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Materialise's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Materialise shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Materialise shares traded daily (recently around 458153.02013423). Materialise's SIR currently stands at 1.49. In other words for every 100,000 Materialise shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1490 shares are currently held short.

However Materialise's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Materialise shares, or, against the total number of tradable Materialise shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Materialise's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Materialise shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Materialise shares, roughly 0 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 Materialise.
