Is Perion Network under- or over-valued?
Valuing Perion Network stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Perion Network's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Perion Network's P/E ratio
Perion Network's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 48x. In other words, Perion Network shares trade at around 48x 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.
Perion Network's PEG ratio
Perion Network's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0866. 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 Perion Network'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 Perion Network shares
There are currently 288,042 Perion Network shares held short by investors – that's known as Perion Network's "short interest". This figure is 4.1% down from 300,307 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Perion Network shares can be evaluated.
Perion Network's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Perion Network's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Perion Network shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Perion Network shares traded daily (recently around 738569.23076923). Perion Network's SIR currently stands at 0.39. In other words for every 100,000 Perion Network shares traded daily on the market, roughly 390 shares are currently held short.
However Perion Network's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Perion Network shares, or, against the total number of tradable Perion Network shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Perion Network's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Perion Network shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0115% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Perion Network shares, roughly 12 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 Perion Network.

Have Perion Network's shares ever split?
Perion Network's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 26 August 2018. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Perion Network shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Perion Network shares which in turn could have impacted Perion Network's share price.
Perion Network share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Perion Network's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.56 up to $26.69. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Perion Network's is 1.074. This would suggest that Perion Network's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
