Is CDK Global under- or over-valued?
Valuing CDK Global stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of CDK Global's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
CDK Global's P/E ratio
CDK Global's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, CDK Global shares trade at around 6x 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.
CDK Global's PEG ratio
CDK Global's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2. 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 CDK Global's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

CDK Global's SIR currently stands at 2.7. In other words for every 100,000 CDK Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2700 shares are currently held short.
However CDK Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CDK Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable CDK Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CDK Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CDK Global shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.016% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CDK Global 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 CDK Global.
