Is PCTEL under- or over-valued?
Valuing PCTEL stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PCTEL's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
PCTEL's P/E ratio
PCTEL's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, PCTEL shares trade at around 35x 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.
PCTEL's PEG ratio
PCTEL's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.7. 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 PCTEL's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
PCTEL's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a PCTEL's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$77.7 million|
|Operating margin TTM||4.58%|
|Gross profit TTM||$37.9 million|
|Return on assets TTM||2.66%|

Shorting PCTEL shares
There are currently 160,663 PCTEL shares held short by investors – that's known as PCTEL's "short interest". This figure is 71.5% down from 563,099 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PCTEL shares can be evaluated.
PCTEL's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
PCTEL's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PCTEL shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PCTEL shares traded daily (recently around 223143.05555556). PCTEL's SIR currently stands at 0.72. In other words for every 100,000 PCTEL shares traded daily on the market, roughly 720 shares are currently held short.
However PCTEL's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PCTEL shares, or, against the total number of tradable PCTEL shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PCTEL's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PCTEL shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0117% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PCTEL shares, roughly 12 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 PCTEL.

PCTEL share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 80.47% of net profits
Recently PCTEL has paid out, on average, around 80.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PCTEL shareholders could enjoy a 3.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PCTEL's case, that would currently equate to about $0.22 per share.
PCTEL's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
PCTEL's most recent dividend payout was on 13 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
PCTEL share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, PCTEL's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.7882 up to $9.0741. 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 PCTEL's is 0.3134. This would suggest that PCTEL's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
