Is KnowBe4 under- or over-valued?

Valuing KnowBe4 stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of KnowBe4's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

KnowBe4's P/E ratio

KnowBe4's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1682x. In other words, KnowBe4 shares trade at around 1682x 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.

However, KnowBe4's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the software-infrastructure industry or those of similar companies.

KnowBe4's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $8.2 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a KnowBe4's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting KnowBe4 shares

There are currently 2.7 million KnowBe4 shares held short by investors – that's known as KnowBe4's "short interest". This figure is 157% up from 1.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting KnowBe4 shares can be evaluated.

KnowBe4's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

KnowBe4's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of KnowBe4 shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of KnowBe4 shares traded daily (recently around 534880.11811024). KnowBe4's SIR currently stands at 5.08. In other words for every 100,000 KnowBe4 shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5080 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare KnowBe4's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However KnowBe4's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of KnowBe4 shares, or, against the total number of tradable KnowBe4 shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case KnowBe4's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 KnowBe4 shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.2864% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable KnowBe4 shares, roughly 286 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 KnowBe4.
