Is Surmodics under- or over-valued?

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

Surmodics's P/E ratio

Surmodics's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1184x. In other words, Surmodics shares trade at around 1184x 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.

Surmodics's PEG ratio

Surmodics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 15.975. 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 Surmodics's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Surmodics's EBITDA

Surmodics's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.4 million.

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

Shorting Surmodics shares

There are currently 318,192 Surmodics shares held short by investors – that's known as Surmodics's "short interest". This figure is 9.9% down from 353,244 last month.

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

Surmodics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Surmodics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Surmodics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Surmodics shares traded daily (recently around 59586.516853933). Surmodics's SIR currently stands at 5.34. In other words for every 100,000 Surmodics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5340 shares are currently held short.

However Surmodics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Surmodics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Surmodics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Surmodics's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Surmodics shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0347% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Surmodics shares, roughly 35 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Surmodics.

Surmodics share dividends

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

Have Surmodics's shares ever split?

Surmodics's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 6 December 2000. 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 Surmodics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Surmodics shares which in turn could have impacted Surmodics's share price.

Surmodics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Surmodics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $33.45 up to $59.75. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SRDX.US volatility(beta: 1.06)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 Surmodics's is 1.0612. This would suggest that Surmodics's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
