Is Teligent under- or over-valued?

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

Teligent's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.18. 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 Teligent'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 Teligent shares

There are currently 1.9 million Teligent shares held short by investors – that's known as Teligent's "short interest". This figure is 280.2% up from 494,528 last month.

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

Teligent's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Teligent's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Teligent shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Teligent shares traded daily (recently around 4.5 million). Teligent's SIR currently stands at 0.42. In other words for every 100,000 Teligent shares traded daily on the market, roughly 420 shares are currently held short.

However Teligent's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Teligent shares, or, against the total number of tradable Teligent shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Teligent's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Teligent shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0279% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Teligent shares, roughly 28 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 Teligent.

Have Teligent's shares ever split?

Teligent's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 27 May 2020. 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 Teligent shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Teligent shares which in turn could have impacted Teligent's share price.

Teligent share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Teligent's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.455 up to $6.459. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TLGT.US volatility(beta: 1.73)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 Teligent's is 1.7264. This would suggest that Teligent's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
