Is The Blackstone Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing The Blackstone Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of The Blackstone Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
The Blackstone Group's P/E ratio
The Blackstone Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, The Blackstone Group shares trade at around 18x 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.
The Blackstone Group's PEG ratio
The Blackstone Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.62. 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 The Blackstone Group'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 The Blackstone Group shares
There are currently 13.6 million The Blackstone Group shares held short by investors – that's known as The Blackstone Group's "short interest". This figure is 35.2% up from 10.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting The Blackstone Group shares can be evaluated.
The Blackstone Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
The Blackstone Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Blackstone Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Blackstone Group shares traded daily (recently around 5.4 million). The Blackstone Group's SIR currently stands at 2.52. In other words for every 100,000 The Blackstone Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2520 shares are currently held short.
However The Blackstone Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Blackstone Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Blackstone Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Blackstone Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Blackstone Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0189% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Blackstone Group 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 The Blackstone Group.
