Is Black Knight 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.

Black Knight's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Black Knight's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
