Is Trimble under- or over-valued?
Valuing Trimble stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Trimble's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Trimble's P/E ratio
Trimble's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 49x. In other words, Trimble shares trade at around 49x 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.
Trimble's PEG ratio
Trimble's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.476. 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 Trimble's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Trimble's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $700.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Trimble's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Trimble shares
There are currently 2.4 million Trimble shares held short by investors – that's known as Trimble's "short interest". This figure is 3.2% down from 2.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Trimble shares can be evaluated.
Trimble's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Trimble's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Trimble shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Trimble shares traded daily (recently around 956379.2). Trimble's SIR currently stands at 2.5. In other words for every 100,000 Trimble shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2500 shares are currently held short.
However Trimble's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Trimble shares, or, against the total number of tradable Trimble shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Trimble's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Trimble shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0096% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Trimble shares, roughly 10 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 Trimble.

Have Trimble's shares ever split?
Trimble's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 March 2013. 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 Trimble shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Trimble shares which in turn could have impacted Trimble's share price.
Trimble share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Trimble's shares have ranged in value from as little as $44.775 up to $86.14. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Trimble's is 1.5234. This would suggest that Trimble's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
