Is New Relic under- or over-valued?

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

New Relic's PEG ratio

New Relic's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 224.3611. 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 New Relic'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 New Relic shares

There are currently 5.5 million New Relic shares held short by investors – that's known as New Relic's "short interest". This figure is 23.2% up from 4.5 million last month.

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

New Relic's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

New Relic's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of New Relic shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of New Relic shares traded daily (recently around 858563.35403727). New Relic's SIR currently stands at 6.44. In other words for every 100,000 New Relic shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6440 shares are currently held short.

However New Relic's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of New Relic shares, or, against the total number of tradable New Relic shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case New Relic's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 New Relic shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1012% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable New Relic shares, roughly 101 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 New Relic.
