Valuing Black Knight stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Black Knight's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Black Knight's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 101x. In other words, Black Knight shares trade at around 101x 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.
Black Knight's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.8506. 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 Black Knight's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Black Knight's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$398.9 million.

There are currently 2.0 million Black Knight shares held short by investors – that's known as Black Knight's "short interest". This figure is 8.9% up from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Black Knight shares can be evaluated.
Black Knight's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Black Knight shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Black Knight shares traded daily (recently around 704180.62283737). Black Knight's SIR currently stands at 2.89. In other words for every 100,000 Black Knight shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2890 shares are currently held short.
However Black Knight's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Black Knight shares, or, against the total number of tradable Black Knight shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Black Knight's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Black Knight shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0177% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Black Knight shares, roughly 18 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 Black Knight.
