Is SolarWinds Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

SolarWinds Corporation's P/E ratio

SolarWinds Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, SolarWinds Corporation shares trade at around 24x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

SolarWinds Corporation's EBITDA

SolarWinds Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $207 million.

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

Shorting SolarWinds Corporation shares

There are currently 6.3 million SolarWinds Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as SolarWinds Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 0.3% down from 6.3 million last month.

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

SolarWinds Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SolarWinds Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SolarWinds Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SolarWinds Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 688370.78774617). SolarWinds Corporation's SIR currently stands at 9.14. In other words for every 100,000 SolarWinds Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9140 shares are currently held short.

However SolarWinds Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SolarWinds Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable SolarWinds Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SolarWinds Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SolarWinds Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.07% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SolarWinds Corporation shares, roughly 70 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 SolarWinds Corporation.

Have SolarWinds Corporation's shares ever split?

SolarWinds Corporation's shares were split on a 1896:1000 basis on 19 July 2021. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1896 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SolarWinds Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 47.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SolarWinds Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted SolarWinds Corporation's share price.

SolarWinds Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SolarWinds Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.3735 up to $12.8376. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SWI.US volatility(beta: 1)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while SolarWinds Corporation's is 0.9986. This would suggest that SolarWinds Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
