Is SPS Commerce 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.

SPS Commerce's PEG ratio

SPS Commerce's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.7094. 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 SPS Commerce'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 SPS Commerce shares

There are currently 705,183 SPS Commerce shares held short by investors – that's known as SPS Commerce's "short interest". This figure is 17.5% down from 854,459 last month.

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

SPS Commerce's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SPS Commerce's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SPS Commerce shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SPS Commerce shares traded daily (recently around 147837.10691824). SPS Commerce's SIR currently stands at 4.77. In other words for every 100,000 SPS Commerce shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4770 shares are currently held short.

However SPS Commerce's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SPS Commerce shares, or, against the total number of tradable SPS Commerce shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SPS Commerce's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SPS Commerce shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0197% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SPS Commerce shares, roughly 20 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 SPS Commerce.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SPS Commerce shares which in turn could have impacted SPS Commerce's share price.
