Is Box under- or over-valued?

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

Box's PEG ratio

Box's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.2357. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Box's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

How to short and sell Box stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "BOX.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 12.3 million Box stocks held short by investors – that's known as Box's "short interest". This figure is 23.1% up from 10.0 million last month.

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

Box's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Box's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Box stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Box stocks traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). Box's SIR currently stands at 4.92. In other words for every 100,000 Box stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4920 stocks are currently held short.

However Box's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Box stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Box stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Box's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Box stocks in existence, roughly 80 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0866% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Box stocks, roughly 87 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Box.

Box stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Box's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $15.075 up to $26.47. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BOX.US volatility(beta: 1.41)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Box's is 1.4141. This would suggest that Box's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
