Is Oxford Immunotec Global under- or over-valued?

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

Oxford Immunotec Global's P/E ratio

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

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

Oxford Immunotec Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Oxford Immunotec Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oxford Immunotec Global shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oxford Immunotec Global shares traded daily (recently around 974707.14285714). Oxford Immunotec Global's SIR currently stands at 0.14. In other words for every 100,000 Oxford Immunotec Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 140 shares are currently held short.

However Oxford Immunotec Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oxford Immunotec Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oxford Immunotec Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oxford Immunotec Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oxford Immunotec Global shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0077% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oxford Immunotec Global shares, roughly 8 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 Oxford Immunotec Global.
