Valuing Optical Cable Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Optical Cable Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Optical Cable Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Optical Cable Corporation shares trade at around 5x 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.

There are currently 13,566 Optical Cable Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Optical Cable Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 34.2% down from 20,618 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Optical Cable Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Optical Cable Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Optical Cable Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Optical Cable Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 22610). Optical Cable Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.6. In other words for every 100,000 Optical Cable Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 600 shares are currently held short.
However Optical Cable Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Optical Cable Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Optical Cable Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Optical Cable Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Optical Cable Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0029% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Optical Cable Corporation shares, roughly 3 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 Optical Cable Corporation.

We're not expecting Optical Cable Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Optical Cable Corporation's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 30 July 2002. So if you had owned 8 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Optical Cable Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Optical Cable Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Optical Cable Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Optical Cable Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.52 up to $4.69. 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 Optical Cable Corporation's is 0.5201. This would suggest that Optical Cable Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
