Is BlackLine under- or over-valued?

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

BlackLine's PEG ratio

BlackLine's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 10.304. 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 BlackLine's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting BlackLine shares

There are currently 5.2 million BlackLine shares held short by investors – that's known as BlackLine's "short interest". This figure is 2.9% up from 5.1 million last month.

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

BlackLine's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BlackLine's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BlackLine shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BlackLine shares traded daily (recently around 303845.32248693). BlackLine's SIR currently stands at 17.21. In other words for every 100,000 BlackLine shares traded daily on the market, roughly 17210 shares are currently held short.

However BlackLine's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BlackLine shares, or, against the total number of tradable BlackLine shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BlackLine's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BlackLine shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1015% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BlackLine shares, roughly 102 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against BlackLine.
