Is IPG Photonics Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing IPG Photonics Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of IPG Photonics Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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 shares or simply that they're over-valued.

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

Shorting IPG Photonics Corporation shares
There are currently 1.6 million IPG Photonics Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as IPG Photonics Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 5.3% up from 1.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting IPG Photonics Corporation shares can be evaluated.
IPG Photonics Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
IPG Photonics Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IPG Photonics Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IPG Photonics Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 282922.35701906). IPG Photonics Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.77. In other words for every 100,000 IPG Photonics Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5770 shares are currently held short.
However IPG Photonics Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IPG Photonics Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable IPG Photonics Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IPG Photonics Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IPG Photonics Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0453% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IPG Photonics Corporation shares, roughly 45 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against IPG Photonics Corporation.
