Is Alteryx under- or over-valued?

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

Alteryx's P/E ratio

Alteryx's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2507x. In other words, Alteryx shares trade at around 2507x 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.

Alteryx's EBITDA

Alteryx's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$25.1 million.

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

Shorting Alteryx shares

There are currently 8.3 million Alteryx shares held short by investors – that's known as Alteryx's "short interest". This figure is 7.4% down from 9.0 million last month.

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

Alteryx's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Alteryx's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Alteryx shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Alteryx shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Alteryx's SIR currently stands at 5.69. In other words for every 100,000 Alteryx shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5690 shares are currently held short.

However Alteryx's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Alteryx shares, or, against the total number of tradable Alteryx shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Alteryx's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Alteryx shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1913% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Alteryx shares, roughly 191 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 Alteryx.

Alteryx share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Alteryx's shares have ranged in value from as little as $75.17 up to $185.75. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AYX.US volatility(beta: 1.09)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Alteryx's is 1.0907. This would suggest that Alteryx'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).
