Is GoPro under- or over-valued?
Valuing GoPro stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of GoPro's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
GoPro's PEG ratio
GoPro's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0108. 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 GoPro's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.
GoPro's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$52.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a GoPro's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 17.3 million GoPro stocks held short by investors – that's known as GoPro's "short interest". This figure is 15.1% up from 15.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting GoPro stocks can be evaluated.
GoPro's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
GoPro's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GoPro stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GoPro stocks traded daily (recently around 3.8 million). GoPro's SIR currently stands at 4.57. In other words for every 100,000 GoPro stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4570 stocks are currently held short.
However GoPro's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GoPro stocks, or, against the total number of tradable GoPro stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GoPro's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 GoPro stocks in existence, roughly 120 stocks are currently held short) or 0.1594% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable GoPro stocks, roughly 159 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 GoPro.

GoPro stock price volatility
Over the last 12 months, GoPro's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $3.74 up to $13.79. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while GoPro's is 1.2228. This would suggest that GoPro's stocks are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
