Is Perficient under- or over-valued?
Valuing Perficient stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Perficient's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Perficient's P/E ratio
Perficient's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 70x. In other words, Perficient shares trade at around 70x 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.
Perficient's PEG ratio
Perficient's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.1628. 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 Perficient's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Perficient's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $119.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Perficient's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Perficient shares
There are currently 2.4 million Perficient shares held short by investors – that's known as Perficient's "short interest". This figure is 5.9% up from 2.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Perficient shares can be evaluated.
Perficient's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Perficient's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Perficient shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Perficient shares traded daily (recently around 265195.87852495). Perficient's SIR currently stands at 9.22. In other words for every 100,000 Perficient shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9220 shares are currently held short.
However Perficient's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Perficient shares, or, against the total number of tradable Perficient shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Perficient's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Perficient shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0761% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Perficient shares, roughly 76 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 Perficient.
