Is SWK Holdings Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

SWK Holdings Corporation's P/E ratio

SWK Holdings Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, SWK Holdings Corporation shares trade at around 20x 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.

Shorting SWK Holdings Corporation shares

There are currently 52,776 SWK Holdings Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as SWK Holdings Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 16.3% up from 45,378 last month.

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

SWK Holdings Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SWK Holdings Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SWK Holdings Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SWK Holdings Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 9846.2686567164). SWK Holdings Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.36. In other words for every 100,000 SWK Holdings Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5360 shares are currently held short.

However SWK Holdings Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SWK Holdings Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable SWK Holdings Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SWK Holdings Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SWK Holdings Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0151% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SWK Holdings Corporation shares, roughly 15 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 SWK Holdings Corporation.

Have SWK Holdings Corporation's shares ever split?

SWK Holdings Corporation's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 7 October 2015. So if you had owned 10 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 SWK Holdings Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for SWK Holdings Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted SWK Holdings Corporation's share price.

SWK Holdings Corporation share price volatility
