Is Ooma under- or over-valued?

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

Ooma's PEG ratio

Ooma's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.82. 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 Ooma'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 Ooma shares

There are currently 1.5 million Ooma shares held short by investors – that's known as Ooma's "short interest". This figure is 1.8% up from 1.5 million last month.

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

Ooma's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ooma's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ooma shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ooma shares traded daily (recently around 203872.83783784). Ooma's SIR currently stands at 7.4. In other words for every 100,000 Ooma shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7400 shares are currently held short.

However Ooma's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ooma shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ooma shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ooma's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ooma shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0722% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ooma shares, roughly 72 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 Ooma.

Ooma share price volatility
