Is Stratasys under- or over-valued?

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

Stratasys's P/E ratio

Stratasys's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 228x. In other words, Stratasys shares trade at around 228x 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.

Stratasys's PEG ratio

Stratasys's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6. 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 Stratasys's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Stratasys's EBITDA

Stratasys's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $23.1 million.

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

Shorting Stratasys shares

There are currently 4.4 million Stratasys shares held short by investors – that's known as Stratasys's "short interest". This figure is 70.9% up from 2.6 million last month.

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

Stratasys's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Stratasys's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Stratasys shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Stratasys shares traded daily (recently around 4.1 million). Stratasys's SIR currently stands at 1.07. In other words for every 100,000 Stratasys shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1070 shares are currently held short.

However Stratasys's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Stratasys shares, or, against the total number of tradable Stratasys shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Stratasys's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Stratasys shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.081% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Stratasys shares, roughly 81 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 Stratasys.

Stratasys share dividends

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

Have Stratasys's shares ever split?

Stratasys's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 29 August 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Stratasys shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stratasys shares which in turn could have impacted Stratasys's share price.

Stratasys share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Stratasys's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.89 up to $56.95. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SSYS.US volatility(beta: 1.47)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 Stratasys's is 1.4664. This would suggest that Stratasys's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
