Is Bridgeline Digital under- or over-valued?

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

Bridgeline Digital's P/E ratio

Bridgeline Digital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Bridgeline Digital shares trade at around 1x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Shorting Bridgeline Digital shares

There are currently 34,153 Bridgeline Digital shares held short by investors – that's known as Bridgeline Digital's "short interest". This figure is 116.4% up from 15,785 last month.

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

Bridgeline Digital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bridgeline Digital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bridgeline Digital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bridgeline Digital shares traded daily (recently around 189738.88888889). Bridgeline Digital's SIR currently stands at 0.18. In other words for every 100,000 Bridgeline Digital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 180 shares are currently held short.

However Bridgeline Digital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bridgeline Digital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bridgeline Digital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bridgeline Digital's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bridgeline Digital shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.016% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bridgeline Digital shares, roughly 16 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 Bridgeline Digital.

However, indirectly, the new 4900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bridgeline Digital shares which in turn could have impacted Bridgeline Digital's share price.
