Is PRGX Global under- or over-valued?

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.

PRGX Global's PEG ratio

PRGX Global's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2567. 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 PRGX Global'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 PRGX Global shares

There are currently 197,695 PRGX Global shares held short by investors – that's known as PRGX Global's "short interest". This figure is 8.5% down from 215,975 last month.

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

PRGX Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PRGX Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PRGX Global shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PRGX Global shares traded daily (recently around 219661.11111111). PRGX Global's SIR currently stands at 0.9. In other words for every 100,000 PRGX Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 900 shares are currently held short.

However PRGX Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PRGX Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable PRGX Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PRGX Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PRGX Global shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0112% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PRGX Global shares, roughly 11 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 PRGX Global.

Have PRGX Global's shares ever split?

PRGX Global's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 13 August 2006. So if you had owned 10 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 PRGX Global shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for PRGX Global shares which in turn could have impacted PRGX Global's share price.

PRGX Global share price volatility

This would suggest that PRGX Global's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
