Is VirTra under- or over-valued?

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

VirTra's P/E ratio

VirTra'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, VirTra 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.

VirTra's PEG ratio

VirTra's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6473. 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 VirTra's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

VirTra's EBITDA

VirTra's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.7 million.

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

Shorting VirTra shares

There are currently 98,389 VirTra shares held short by investors – that's known as VirTra's "short interest". This figure is 27.1% down from 134,931 last month.

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

VirTra's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

VirTra's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of VirTra shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of VirTra shares traded daily (recently around 182201.85185185). VirTra's SIR currently stands at 0.54. In other words for every 100,000 VirTra shares traded daily on the market, roughly 540 shares are currently held short.

However VirTra's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of VirTra shares, or, against the total number of tradable VirTra shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case VirTra's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 VirTra shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0095% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable VirTra 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 VirTra.

VirTra share dividends

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

Have VirTra's shares ever split?

VirTra's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 1 March 2018. So if you had owned 2 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 VirTra shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for VirTra shares which in turn could have impacted VirTra's share price.

VirTra share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, VirTra's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.395 up to $12.19. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VTSI.US volatility(beta: 1.03)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 VirTra's is 1.0339. This would suggest that VirTra'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).
