Is Applied Optoelectronics under- or over-valued?
Valuing Applied Optoelectronics stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Applied Optoelectronics's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Applied Optoelectronics's PEG ratio
Applied Optoelectronics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.51. 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.
