Is Sunworks under- or over-valued?

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

Sunworks's PEG ratio

Sunworks's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3738. 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 Sunworks'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 Sunworks shares

There are currently 2.0 million Sunworks shares held short by investors – that's known as Sunworks's "short interest". This figure is 37.2% up from 1.4 million last month.

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

Sunworks's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sunworks's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sunworks shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sunworks shares traded daily (recently around 5.0 million). Sunworks's SIR currently stands at 0.39. In other words for every 100,000 Sunworks shares traded daily on the market, roughly 390 shares are currently held short.

However Sunworks's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sunworks shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sunworks shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sunworks's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sunworks shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0825% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sunworks shares, roughly 83 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 Sunworks.

Sunworks share dividends

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

Have Sunworks's shares ever split?

Sunworks's shares were split on a 1:7 basis on 29 August 2019. So if you had owned 7 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 Sunworks shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sunworks shares which in turn could have impacted Sunworks's share price.

Sunworks share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sunworks's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.36 up to $29.3699. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SUNW.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 Sunworks's is 1.5929. This would suggest that Sunworks's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
