Is Q2 under- or over-valued?

Valuing Q2 stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Q2's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Q2's PEG ratio

Q2's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 10.5832. 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 Q2'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 Q2 shares

There are currently 6.3 million Q2 shares held short by investors – that's known as Q2's "short interest". This figure is 8.4% up from 5.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Q2 shares can be evaluated.

Q2's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Q2's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Q2 shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Q2 shares traded daily (recently around 368071.90615836). Q2's SIR currently stands at 17.05. In other words for every 100,000 Q2 shares traded daily on the market, roughly 17050 shares are currently held short.

However Q2's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Q2 shares, or, against the total number of tradable Q2 shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Q2's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Q2 shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1249% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Q2 shares, roughly 125 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Q2.

Q2 share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Q2's shares have ranged in value from as little as $47.17 up to $117.67. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

QTWO.US volatility(beta: 1.71)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Q2's is 1.7097. This would suggest that Q2's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
