Is Optibase under- or over-valued?
Valuing Optibase stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Optibase's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Optibase's P/E ratio
Optibase's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Optibase shares trade at around 10x 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.

Shorting Optibase shares
There are currently 149 Optibase shares held short by investors – that's known as Optibase's "short interest". This figure is 0% down from 149 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Optibase shares can be evaluated.
Optibase's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Optibase's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Optibase shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Optibase shares traded daily (recently around 338.63636363636). Optibase's SIR currently stands at 0.44. In other words for every 100,000 Optibase shares traded daily on the market, roughly 440 shares are currently held short.
However Optibase's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Optibase shares, or, against the total number of tradable Optibase shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Optibase's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Optibase shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0002% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Optibase 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 Optibase.
