Is Nutanix under- or over-valued?

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

Nutanix's PEG ratio

Nutanix's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6. 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 Nutanix's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Nutanix shares

There are currently 5.1 million Nutanix shares held short by investors – that's known as Nutanix's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% down from 5.1 million last month.

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

Nutanix's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Nutanix's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nutanix shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nutanix shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Nutanix's SIR currently stands at 4.01. In other words for every 100,000 Nutanix shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4010 shares are currently held short.

However Nutanix's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nutanix shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nutanix shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nutanix's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nutanix shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0316% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nutanix shares, roughly 32 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 Nutanix.

Nutanix share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nutanix's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.31 up to $35.58. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NTNX.US volatility(beta: 1.97)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 Nutanix's is 1.9693. This would suggest that Nutanix's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
