Is Tucows under- or over-valued?
Valuing Tucows stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Tucows's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Tucows's P/E ratio
Tucows's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 120x. In other words, Tucows stocks trade at around 120x 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.
Tucows's PEG ratio
Tucows's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.15. 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 Tucows's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Tucows's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$19.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Tucows's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||USD$291.1 million|
|Gross profit TTM||USD$100.6 million|
|Return on assets TTM||-0.46%|
|Return on equity TTM||6.48%|
|Market capitalisation||USD$806.5 million|

There are currently 729,613 Tucows stocks held short by investors – that's known as Tucows's "short interest". This figure is 3.7% up from 703,583 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Tucows stocks can be evaluated.
Tucows's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Tucows's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tucows stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tucows stocks traded daily (recently around 20357.505580357). Tucows's SIR currently stands at 35.84. In other words for every 100,000 Tucows stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 35840 stocks are currently held short.
However Tucows's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tucows stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Tucows stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tucows's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Tucows stocks in existence, roughly 70 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0888% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Tucows stocks, roughly 89 stocks are currently held short).
A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the stock price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Tucows.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Tucows stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Tucows stocks which in turn could have impacted Tucows's stock price.
Tucows stock price volatility
