Is TechTarget under- or over-valued?

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

TechTarget's P/E ratio

TechTarget's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 83x. In other words, TechTarget shares trade at around 83x 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.

TechTarget's PEG ratio

TechTarget's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.59. 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 TechTarget's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TechTarget's EBITDA

TechTarget's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$28.6 million.

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

Shorting TechTarget shares

There are currently 1.1 million TechTarget shares held short by investors – that's known as TechTarget's "short interest". This figure is 16.2% down from 1.3 million last month.

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

TechTarget's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TechTarget's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TechTarget shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TechTarget shares traded daily (recently around 192569.23076923). TechTarget's SIR currently stands at 5.85. In other words for every 100,000 TechTarget shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5850 shares are currently held short.

However TechTarget's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TechTarget shares, or, against the total number of tradable TechTarget shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TechTarget's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TechTarget shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.056% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TechTarget shares, roughly 56 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 TechTarget.
