Is Teradata Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Teradata Corporation's P/E ratio

Teradata 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 45x. In other words, Teradata Corporation shares trade at around 45x 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.

Teradata Corporation's PEG ratio

Teradata Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.5366. 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 Teradata Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Teradata Corporation's EBITDA

Teradata Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $193 million.

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

Shorting Teradata Corporation shares

There are currently 8.3 million Teradata Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Teradata Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% up from 8.2 million last month.

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

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

Teradata Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Teradata Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Teradata Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Teradata Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.19. In other words for every 100,000 Teradata Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6190 shares are currently held short.

However Teradata Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Teradata Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Teradata Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Teradata Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Teradata Corporation shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1195% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Teradata Corporation shares, roughly 120 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 Teradata Corporation.
