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 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 GoPro's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
GoPro's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$52.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a GoPro's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting GoPro shares
There are currently 17.7 million GoPro shares held short by investors – that's known as GoPro's "short interest". This figure is 2.3% up from 17.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting GoPro shares can be evaluated.
GoPro's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
GoPro's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GoPro shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GoPro shares traded daily (recently around 3.9 million). GoPro's SIR currently stands at 4.57. In other words for every 100,000 GoPro shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4570 shares are currently held short.
However GoPro's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GoPro shares, or, against the total number of tradable GoPro shares (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 shares (for every 100,000 GoPro shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.144% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GoPro shares, roughly 144 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 GoPro.

GoPro share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, GoPro's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$3.74 up to US$13.79. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's 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 shares 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).
