Is Forrester Research under- or over-valued?
Valuing Forrester Research stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Forrester Research's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Forrester Research's P/E ratio
Forrester Research's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 61x. In other words, Forrester Research shares trade at around 61x 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.
Forrester Research's PEG ratio
Forrester Research's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.378. 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 Forrester Research's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Forrester Research's EBITDA
Forrester Research's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $49.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Forrester Research's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Forrester Research shares
There are currently 408,835 Forrester Research shares held short by investors – that's known as Forrester Research's "short interest". This figure is 5.9% down from 434,680 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Forrester Research shares can be evaluated.
Forrester Research's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Forrester Research's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Forrester Research shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Forrester Research shares traded daily (recently around 39048.2330468). Forrester Research's SIR currently stands at 10.47. In other words for every 100,000 Forrester Research shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10470 shares are currently held short.
However Forrester Research's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Forrester Research shares, or, against the total number of tradable Forrester Research shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Forrester Research's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Forrester Research shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0366% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Forrester Research shares, roughly 37 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 Forrester Research.

Forrester Research share dividends
We're not expecting Forrester Research to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Forrester Research's shares ever split?
Forrester Research's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 February 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Forrester Research shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Forrester Research shares which in turn could have impacted Forrester Research's share price.
Forrester Research share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Forrester Research's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.88 up to $47.44. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Forrester Research's is 1.0767. This would suggest that Forrester Research's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
