Is RealPage under- or over-valued?

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

RealPage's P/E ratio

RealPage's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 189x. In other words, RealPage shares trade at around 189x 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.

RealPage's PEG ratio

RealPage's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.22. 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 RealPage's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

RealPage's EBITDA

RealPage's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$196.4 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a RealPage's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting RealPage shares

There are currently 7.1 million RealPage shares held short by investors – that's known as RealPage's "short interest". This figure is 8.5% up from 6.6 million last month.

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

RealPage's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

RealPage's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RealPage shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RealPage shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). RealPage's SIR currently stands at 2.93. In other words for every 100,000 RealPage shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2930 shares are currently held short.

However RealPage's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RealPage shares, or, against the total number of tradable RealPage shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RealPage's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RealPage shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0802% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RealPage shares, roughly 80 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 RealPage.

RealPage share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, RealPage's shares have ranged in value from as little as $36.91 up to $88.09. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RP.US volatility(beta: 1.15)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while RealPage's is 1.1537. This would suggest that RealPage'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).
