Is Rubicon Technology under- or over-valued?

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

Rubicon Technology's P/E ratio

Rubicon Technology's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 69x. In other words, Rubicon Technology shares trade at around 69x 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.

Shorting Rubicon Technology shares

There are currently 38,117 Rubicon Technology shares held short by investors – that's known as Rubicon Technology's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% down from 39,317 last month.

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

Rubicon Technology's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Rubicon Technology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Rubicon Technology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Rubicon Technology shares traded daily (recently around 2348.5520640789). Rubicon Technology's SIR currently stands at 16.23. In other words for every 100,000 Rubicon Technology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 16230 shares are currently held short.

However Rubicon Technology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Rubicon Technology shares, or, against the total number of tradable Rubicon Technology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Rubicon Technology's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Rubicon Technology shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0221% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Rubicon Technology shares, roughly 22 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 Rubicon Technology.

Have Rubicon Technology's shares ever split?

Rubicon Technology's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 4 May 2017. So if you had owned 10 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 Rubicon Technology shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rubicon Technology shares which in turn could have impacted Rubicon Technology's share price.

Rubicon Technology share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Rubicon Technology's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.96 up to $11.84. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Rubicon Technology's is 0.4178. This would suggest that Rubicon Technology's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
