Is SMART Global under- or over-valued?

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

SMART Global's P/E ratio

SMART Global's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 143x. In other words, SMART Global shares trade at around 143x 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.

SMART Global's PEG ratio

SMART Global's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.09. 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 SMART Global's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


SMART Global's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $113.9 million.

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

Shorting SMART Global shares

There are currently 2.2 million SMART Global shares held short by investors – that's known as SMART Global's "short interest". This figure is 28.7% up from 1.7 million last month.

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

SMART Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SMART Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SMART Global shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SMART Global shares traded daily (recently around 815565.66037736). SMART Global's SIR currently stands at 2.65. In other words for every 100,000 SMART Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2650 shares are currently held short.

However SMART Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SMART Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable SMART Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SMART Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SMART Global shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0942% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SMART Global shares, roughly 94 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 SMART Global.
