Is AppFolio under- or over-valued?
Valuing AppFolio stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AppFolio's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AppFolio's P/E ratio
AppFolio's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, AppFolio shares trade at around 32x 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.
AppFolio's PEG ratio
AppFolio's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.3. 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 AppFolio's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
AppFolio's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $14.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a AppFolio's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$316.5 million|
|Operating margin TTM||1.76%|
|Gross profit TTM||$191 million|
|Return on assets TTM||1.04%|

Shorting AppFolio shares
There are currently 902,065 AppFolio shares held short by investors – that's known as AppFolio's "short interest". This figure is 4.5% down from 944,274 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AppFolio shares can be evaluated.
AppFolio's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
AppFolio's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AppFolio shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AppFolio shares traded daily (recently around 114766.5394402). AppFolio's SIR currently stands at 7.86. In other words for every 100,000 AppFolio shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7860 shares are currently held short.
However AppFolio's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AppFolio shares, or, against the total number of tradable AppFolio shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AppFolio's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AppFolio shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0554% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AppFolio shares, roughly 55 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 AppFolio.
