Is Radware under- or over-valued?

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

Radware's P/E ratio

Radware's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 95x. In other words, Radware shares trade at around 95x 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.

Radware's PEG ratio

Radware's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.6913. 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 Radware's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Radware's EBITDA

Radware's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$19.7 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Radware's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Radware shares

There are currently 1.0 million Radware shares held short by investors – that's known as Radware's "short interest". This figure is 6.7% down from 1.1 million last month.

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

Radware's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Radware's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Radware shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Radware shares traded daily (recently around 121440.96969697). Radware's SIR currently stands at 8.25. In other words for every 100,000 Radware shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8250 shares are currently held short.

However Radware's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Radware shares, or, against the total number of tradable Radware shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Radware's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Radware shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0286% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Radware shares, roughly 29 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 Radware.

Radware share dividends

We're not expecting Radware to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Radware's shares ever split?

Radware's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 April 2013. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Radware shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Radware shares which in turn could have impacted Radware's share price.

Radware share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Radware's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.021 up to $28.7. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RDWR.US volatility(beta: 0.97)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Radware's is 0.9722. This would suggest that Radware's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
