Is SailPoint Technologies under- or over-valued?

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

SailPoint Technologies's P/E ratio

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into SailPoint Technologies'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 SailPoint Technologies shares

There are currently 8.9 million SailPoint Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as SailPoint Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 2% down from 9.0 million last month.

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

SailPoint Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SailPoint Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SailPoint Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SailPoint Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). SailPoint Technologies's SIR currently stands at 8.77. In other words for every 100,000 SailPoint Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8770 shares are currently held short.

However SailPoint Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SailPoint Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable SailPoint Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SailPoint Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SailPoint Technologies shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1005% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SailPoint Technologies shares, roughly 101 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 SailPoint Technologies.
