Is PDF Solutions under- or over-valued?
Valuing PDF Solutions stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PDF Solutions's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
PDF Solutions's PEG ratio
PDF Solutions's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.37. 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 PDF Solutions's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting PDF Solutions shares
There are currently 994,709 PDF Solutions shares held short by investors – that's known as PDF Solutions's "short interest". This figure is 0.2% down from 997,123 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PDF Solutions shares can be evaluated.
PDF Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
PDF Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PDF Solutions shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PDF Solutions shares traded daily (recently around 214839.95680346). PDF Solutions's SIR currently stands at 4.63. In other words for every 100,000 PDF Solutions shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4630 shares are currently held short.
However PDF Solutions's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PDF Solutions shares, or, against the total number of tradable PDF Solutions shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PDF Solutions's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PDF Solutions shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0338% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PDF Solutions shares, roughly 34 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 PDF Solutions.
