Is OptimizeRx Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

OptimizeRx Corporation's P/E ratio

OptimizeRx 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 247x. In other words, OptimizeRx Corporation shares trade at around 247x recent earnings.

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

OptimizeRx Corporation's PEG ratio

OptimizeRx Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.1267. 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 OptimizeRx Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

OptimizeRx Corporation's EBITDA

OptimizeRx Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$298,779.

Shorting OptimizeRx Corporation shares

There are currently 1.0 million OptimizeRx Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as OptimizeRx Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 4.1% up from 988,890 last month.

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

OptimizeRx Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

OptimizeRx Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of OptimizeRx Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of OptimizeRx Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 189255.88235294). OptimizeRx Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.44. In other words for every 100,000 OptimizeRx Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5440 shares are currently held short.

However OptimizeRx Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of OptimizeRx Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable OptimizeRx Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case OptimizeRx Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 OptimizeRx Corporation shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0706% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable OptimizeRx Corporation shares, roughly 71 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 OptimizeRx Corporation.
