Is Medallia under- or over-valued?

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

Medallia's PEG ratio

Medallia's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.795. 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 Medallia'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 Medallia shares

There are currently 17.6 million Medallia shares held short by investors – that's known as Medallia's "short interest". This figure is 48.5% up from 11.9 million last month.

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

Medallia's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Medallia's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Medallia shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Medallia shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). Medallia's SIR currently stands at 6.2. In other words for every 100,000 Medallia shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6200 shares are currently held short.

However Medallia's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Medallia shares, or, against the total number of tradable Medallia shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Medallia's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Medallia shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1954% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Medallia shares, roughly 195 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 Medallia.
