Is Blackbaud under- or over-valued?
Valuing Blackbaud stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Blackbaud's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Blackbaud's P/E ratio
Blackbaud's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1233x. In other words, Blackbaud shares trade at around 1233x 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.
Blackbaud's PEG ratio
Blackbaud's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.6531. 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 Blackbaud's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Blackbaud's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $105.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Blackbaud's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$908.8 million|
|Operating margin TTM||5.07%|
|Gross profit TTM||$490.4 million|
|Return on assets TTM||1.72%|

Shorting Blackbaud shares
There are currently 2.2 million Blackbaud shares held short by investors – that's known as Blackbaud's "short interest". This figure is 6.1% down from 2.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Blackbaud shares can be evaluated.
Blackbaud's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Blackbaud's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Blackbaud shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Blackbaud shares traded daily (recently around 251706.52418448). Blackbaud's SIR currently stands at 8.89. In other words for every 100,000 Blackbaud shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8890 shares are currently held short.
However Blackbaud's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Blackbaud shares, or, against the total number of tradable Blackbaud shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Blackbaud's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Blackbaud shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0546% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Blackbaud 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 Blackbaud.

Blackbaud share price volatility

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Blackbaud's is 1.13. This would suggest that Blackbaud'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).
