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 48x. In other words, eGain Corporation shares trade at around 48x 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 4.0867. 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.

eGain Corporation's EBITDA

eGain Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $7.8 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a eGain Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting eGain Corporation shares

There are currently 478,528 eGain Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as eGain Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7.5% down from 517,426 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 125928.42105263). eGain Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.8. In other words for every 100,000 eGain Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3800 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 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 eGain Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0252% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable eGain Corporation shares, roughly 25 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 eGain Corporation.

However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for eGain Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted eGain Corporation's share price.
