Is Flotek Industries under- or over-valued?

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

Flotek Industries's PEG ratio

Flotek Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.78. 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 Flotek Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 2.4 million Flotek Industries stocks held short by investors – that's known as Flotek Industries's "short interest". This figure is 8.9% up from 2.2 million last month.

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

Flotek Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Flotek Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Flotek Industries stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Flotek Industries stocks traded daily (recently around 318188.7874837). Flotek Industries's SIR currently stands at 7.67. In other words for every 100,000 Flotek Industries stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 7670 stocks are currently held short.

However Flotek Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Flotek Industries stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Flotek Industries stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Flotek Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Flotek Industries stocks in existence, roughly 30 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0375% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Flotek Industries stocks, roughly 38 stocks are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Flotek Industries.

Have Flotek Industries stocks ever split?

Flotek Industries stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 July 2007. So if you had owned 1 share 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 Flotek Industries stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Flotek Industries stocks which in turn could have impacted Flotek Industries's stock price.

Flotek Industries stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Flotek Industries's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $0.9 up to $3.09. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FTK.US volatility(beta: 2.45)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 Flotek Industries's is 2.4478. This would suggest that Flotek Industries's stocks are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
