Is ServiceNow under- or over-valued?
Valuing ServiceNow stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ServiceNow's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ServiceNow's P/E ratio
ServiceNow's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 772x. In other words, ServiceNow shares trade at around 772x 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.
ServiceNow's PEG ratio
ServiceNow's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.4551. 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 ServiceNow's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ServiceNow's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $613.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a ServiceNow's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting ServiceNow shares
There are currently 3.7 million ServiceNow shares held short by investors – that's known as ServiceNow's "short interest". This figure is 8.2% up from 3.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ServiceNow shares can be evaluated.
ServiceNow's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
ServiceNow's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ServiceNow shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ServiceNow shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). ServiceNow's SIR currently stands at 3.13. In other words for every 100,000 ServiceNow shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3130 shares are currently held short.
However ServiceNow's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ServiceNow shares, or, against the total number of tradable ServiceNow shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ServiceNow's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ServiceNow shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0188% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ServiceNow shares, roughly 19 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 ServiceNow.
