Is Walker-and-Dunlop under- or over-valued?
Valuing Walker-and-Dunlop stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Walker-and-Dunlop's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Walker-and-Dunlop's P/E ratio
Walker-and-Dunlop's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Walker-and-Dunlop shares trade at around 13x 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.
Walker-and-Dunlop's PEG ratio
Walker-and-Dunlop's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.25. 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 Walker-and-Dunlop's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Walker-and-Dunlop shares can be evaluated.
Walker-and-Dunlop's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Walker-and-Dunlop's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Walker-and-Dunlop shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Walker-and-Dunlop shares traded daily (recently around 135175.72815534). Walker-and-Dunlop's SIR currently stands at 3.09. In other words for every 100,000 Walker-and-Dunlop shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3090 shares are currently held short.
However Walker-and-Dunlop's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Walker-and-Dunlop shares, or, against the total number of tradable Walker-and-Dunlop shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Walker-and-Dunlop's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Walker-and-Dunlop shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0142% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Walker-and-Dunlop shares, roughly 14 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 Walker-and-Dunlop.
