Is eGain Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing eGain Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of eGain Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
eGain Corporation's P/E ratio
eGain Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 52x. In other words, eGain Corporation shares trade at around 52x 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.
eGain Corporation's PEG ratio
eGain Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.7467. 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 eGain Corporation'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 eGain Corporation shares
There are currently 913,208 eGain Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as eGain Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.3% down from 1.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting eGain Corporation shares can be evaluated.
eGain Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
eGain Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of eGain Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of eGain Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 163951.16696589). eGain Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.57. In other words for every 100,000 eGain Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5570 shares are currently held short.
However eGain Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of eGain Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable eGain Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case eGain Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 eGain Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0539% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable eGain Corporation shares, roughly 54 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 eGain Corporation.
