Is Opera under- or over-valued?

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

Opera's P/E ratio

Opera's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Opera shares trade at around 7x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Opera's EBITDA

Opera's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$78.5 million.

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

Shorting Opera shares

There are currently 743,743 Opera shares held short by investors – that's known as Opera's "short interest". This figure is 8.7% down from 815,009 last month.

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

Opera's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Opera's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Opera shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Opera shares traded daily (recently around 155594.76987448). Opera's SIR currently stands at 4.78. In other words for every 100,000 Opera shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4780 shares are currently held short.

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

Opera share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Opera's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.6 up to $11.49. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

OPRA.US volatility(beta: 1.13)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 Opera's is 1.1342. This would suggest that Opera's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
