Is Okta under- or over-valued?
Valuing Okta stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Okta's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Okta's PEG ratio
Okta's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 261.45. 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 Okta'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 Okta shares
There are currently 7.0 million Okta shares held short by investors – that's known as Okta's "short interest". This figure is 7% up from 6.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Okta shares can be evaluated.
Okta's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Okta's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Okta shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Okta shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). Okta's SIR currently stands at 3.68. In other words for every 100,000 Okta shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3680 shares are currently held short.
However Okta's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Okta shares, or, against the total number of tradable Okta shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Okta's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Okta shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0559% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Okta shares, roughly 56 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 Okta.
