Is Rambus under- or over-valued?

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

Rambus's PEG ratio

Rambus's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5237. 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 Rambus'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 Rambus shares

There are currently 3.4 million Rambus shares held short by investors – that's known as Rambus's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% up from 3.3 million last month.

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

Rambus's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Rambus's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Rambus shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Rambus shares traded daily (recently around 434259.28297055). Rambus's SIR currently stands at 7.81. In other words for every 100,000 Rambus shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7810 shares are currently held short.

However Rambus's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Rambus shares, or, against the total number of tradable Rambus shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Rambus's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Rambus shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0404% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Rambus shares, roughly 40 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 Rambus.

Rambus share dividends

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

Have Rambus's shares ever split?

Rambus's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 15 June 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Rambus shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rambus shares which in turn could have impacted Rambus's share price.

Rambus share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Rambus's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.01 up to $16.98. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RMBS.US volatility(beta: 1.01)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 Rambus's is 1.0085. This would suggest that Rambus's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
