Is Sify Technologies under- or over-valued?

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

Sify Technologies's P/E ratio

Sify 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 23x. In other words, Sify Technologies shares trade at around 23x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Sify Technologies's PEG ratio

Sify Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9923. 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 Sify 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 Sify Technologies shares

There are currently 8,875 Sify Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Sify Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 58.3% up from 5,608 last month.

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

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

Sify Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sify Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sify Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 147916.66666667). Sify Technologies's SIR currently stands at 0.06. In other words for every 100,000 Sify Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 60 shares are currently held short.

However Sify Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sify Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sify Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sify Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sify Technologies shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sify Technologies shares, roughly 0 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 Sify Technologies.

Sify Technologies share dividends

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

Have Sify Technologies's shares ever split?

Sify Technologies's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 24 September 2002. So if you had owned 4 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 Sify Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sify Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Sify Technologies's share price.

Sify Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sify Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.563 up to $2.54. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SIFY.US volatility(beta: 1.59)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 Sify Technologies's is 1.5898. This would suggest that Sify 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).
