Is NN under- or over-valued?

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

NN's PEG ratio

NN's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.93. 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 NN's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


NN's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$87.8 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a NN's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting NN shares

There are currently 2.1 million NN shares held short by investors – that's known as NN's "short interest". This figure is 8.6% down from 2.3 million last month.

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

NN's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NN's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NN shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NN shares traded daily (recently around 278282.05461638). NN's SIR currently stands at 7.69. In other words for every 100,000 NN shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7690 shares are currently held short.

However NN's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NN shares, or, against the total number of tradable NN shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NN's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NN shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0608% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NN shares, roughly 61 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 NN.

NN share dividends

We're not expecting NN to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have NN's shares ever split?

NN's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 6 December 1995. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NN shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NN shares which in turn could have impacted NN's share price.

NN share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, NN's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.345 up to $10.08. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while NN's is 3.2002. This would suggest that NN's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
