Is WISeKey International Holding under- or over-valued?

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

WISeKey International Holding's P/E ratio

WISeKey International Holding's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, WISeKey International Holding shares trade at around 4x 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 WISeKey International Holding shares

There are currently 1.0 million WISeKey International Holding shares held short by investors – that's known as WISeKey International Holding's "short interest". This figure is 1326.2% up from 72,294 last month.

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

WISeKey International Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

WISeKey International Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of WISeKey International Holding shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WISeKey International Holding shares traded daily (recently around 11.5 million). WISeKey International Holding's SIR currently stands at 0.09. In other words for every 100,000 WISeKey International Holding shares traded daily on the market, roughly 90 shares are currently held short.

However WISeKey International Holding's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WISeKey International Holding shares, or, against the total number of tradable WISeKey International Holding shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WISeKey International Holding's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WISeKey International Holding shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WISeKey International Holding shares, roughly 0 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 WISeKey International Holding.

Have WISeKey International Holding's shares ever split?

WISeKey International Holding's shares were split on a 2:5 basis on 17 November 2019. So if you had owned 5 shares 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 WISeKey International Holding shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 150% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for WISeKey International Holding shares which in turn could have impacted WISeKey International Holding's share price.

WISeKey International Holding share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, WISeKey International Holding's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.9 up to $22.4. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WKEY.US volatility(beta: 1.93)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 WISeKey International Holding's is 1.9269. This would suggest that WISeKey International Holding's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
