Is Tucows under- or over-valued?

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

Tucows's P/E ratio

Tucows's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 130x. In other words, Tucows shares trade at around 130x 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.

Tucows's PEG ratio

Tucows's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.15. 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 Tucows's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Tucows's EBITDA

Tucows's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $19.8 million.

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

Shorting Tucows shares

There are currently 655,689 Tucows shares held short by investors – that's known as Tucows's "short interest". This figure is 9.8% down from 726,843 last month.

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

Tucows's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tucows's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tucows shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tucows shares traded daily (recently around 19561.127684964). Tucows's SIR currently stands at 33.52. In other words for every 100,000 Tucows shares traded daily on the market, roughly 33520 shares are currently held short.

However Tucows's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tucows shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tucows shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tucows's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tucows shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0811% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tucows shares, roughly 81 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Tucows.

Tucows share dividends

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

Have Tucows's shares ever split?

Tucows's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 30 December 2013. So if you had owned 4 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 Tucows shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tucows shares which in turn could have impacted Tucows's share price.

Tucows share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Tucows's shares have ranged in value from as little as $68.67 up to $94.2. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TCX.US volatility(beta: 0.64)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 Tucows's is 0.6397. This would suggest that Tucows's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
