Is Vislink Technologies under- or over-valued?

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

Vislink Technologies's P/E ratio

Vislink Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Vislink Technologies shares trade at around 13x 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 Vislink Technologies shares

There are currently 2.6 million Vislink Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Vislink Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 6.3% up from 2.5 million last month.

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

Vislink Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Vislink Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vislink Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vislink Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 2.3 million). Vislink Technologies's SIR currently stands at 1.15. In other words for every 100,000 Vislink Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1150 shares are currently held short.

However Vislink Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vislink Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vislink Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vislink Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vislink Technologies shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1251% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vislink Technologies shares, roughly 125 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 Vislink Technologies.

Have Vislink Technologies's shares ever split?

Vislink Technologies's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 3 August 2020. So if you had owned 6 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 Vislink Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vislink Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Vislink Technologies's share price.

Over the last 12 months, Vislink Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.66 up to $6.54. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VISL.US volatility(beta: 1.66)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 Vislink Technologies's is 1.659. This would suggest that Vislink Technologies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
