Is it a good time to buy Zebra Technologies stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Zebra Technologies under- or over-valued?

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

Zebra Technologies's P/E ratio

Zebra Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 47x. In other words, Zebra Technologies shares trade at around 47x 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 shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Zebra Technologies's PEG ratio

Zebra Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.1002. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

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

Zebra Technologies's EBITDA

Zebra Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $785 million.

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

How to short and sell Zebra Technologies shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "ZBRA.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 459,374 Zebra Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Zebra Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 9.7% down from 508,535 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Zebra Technologies shares can be evaluated.

Zebra Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Zebra Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zebra Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zebra Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 348010.60606061). Zebra Technologies's SIR currently stands at 1.32. In other words for every 100,000 Zebra Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1320 shares are currently held short.

However Zebra Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zebra Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zebra Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zebra Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zebra Technologies shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0099% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zebra Technologies shares, roughly 10 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Zebra Technologies.

Have Zebra Technologies's shares ever split?

Zebra Technologies's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 26 August 2004. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Zebra Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Zebra Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Zebra Technologies's share price.

Zebra Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Zebra Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $150.06 up to $419.21. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ZBRA.US volatility(beta: 1.66)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Zebra Technologies's is 1.6623. This would suggest that Zebra Technologies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
