Is ClearOne under- or over-valued?

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

ClearOne's P/E ratio

ClearOne's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 74x. In other words, ClearOne stocks trade at around 74x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the stocks or simply that they're over-valued.

ClearOne's PEG ratio

ClearOne's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.74. 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 ClearOne's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ClearOne's EBITDA

ClearOne's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$306,000.

The EBITDA is a measure of a ClearOne's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

How to short and sell ClearOne stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "CLRO.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 123,934 ClearOne stocks held short by investors – that's known as ClearOne's "short interest". This figure is 12.6% down from 141,773 last month.

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

ClearOne's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ClearOne's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ClearOne stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ClearOne stocks traded daily (recently around 116918.86792453). ClearOne's SIR currently stands at 1.06. In other words for every 100,000 ClearOne stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1060 stocks are currently held short.

However ClearOne's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ClearOne stocks, or, against the total number of tradable ClearOne stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ClearOne's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 ClearOne stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0151% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable ClearOne stocks, roughly 15 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 ClearOne.

ClearOne stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ClearOne's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $1.56 up to $4.28. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CLRO.US volatility(beta: 1.43)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while ClearOne's is 1.4271. This would suggest that ClearOne's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
