Is Viveve Medical under- or over-valued?

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

Viveve Medical's P/E ratio

Viveve Medical's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 0x. In other words, Viveve Medical shares trade at around 0x 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 Viveve Medical shares

There are currently 305,633 Viveve Medical shares held short by investors – that's known as Viveve Medical's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% down from 313,486 last month.

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

Viveve Medical's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Viveve Medical's SIR currently stands at 0.69. In other words for every 100,000 Viveve Medical shares traded daily on the market, roughly 690 shares are currently held short.

However Viveve Medical's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Viveve Medical shares, or, against the total number of tradable Viveve Medical shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Viveve Medical's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Viveve Medical shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0194% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Viveve Medical shares, roughly 19 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 Viveve Medical.
