Is RCM Technologies under- or over-valued?

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

RCM Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 222x. In other words, RCM Technologies shares trade at around 222x 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.

RCM Technologies's PEG ratio

RCM Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.36. 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 RCM Technologies'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 RCM Technologies shares

There are currently 105,220 RCM Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as RCM Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 34% down from 159,370 last month.

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

RCM Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

RCM Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RCM Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RCM Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 404692.30769231). RCM Technologies's SIR currently stands at 0.26. In other words for every 100,000 RCM Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 260 shares are currently held short.

However RCM Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RCM Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable RCM Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RCM Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RCM Technologies shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.014% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RCM Technologies shares, roughly 14 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 RCM Technologies.

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

Have RCM Technologies's shares ever split?

RCM Technologies's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 7 April 1996. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your RCM Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for RCM Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted RCM Technologies's share price.

RCM Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, RCM Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.23 up to $8.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RCMT.US volatility(beta: 1.82)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 RCM Technologies's is 1.8228. This would suggest that RCM Technologies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
