Is Forrester Research under- or over-valued?

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

Forrester Research's P/E ratio

Forrester Research's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 61x. In other words, Forrester Research stocks trade at around 61x 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 stocks or simply that they're over-valued.

Forrester Research's PEG ratio

Forrester Research's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.378. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

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

Forrester Research's EBITDA

Forrester Research's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$49.7 million.

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

How to short and sell Forrester Research stocks

  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "FORR.US"

There are currently 408,835 Forrester Research stocks held short by investors – that's known as Forrester Research's "short interest". This figure is 5.9% down from 434,680 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Forrester Research stocks can be evaluated.

Forrester Research's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Forrester Research's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Forrester Research stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Forrester Research stocks traded daily (recently around 39048.2330468). Forrester Research's SIR currently stands at 10.47. In other words for every 100,000 Forrester Research stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 10470 stocks are currently held short.

However Forrester Research's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Forrester Research stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Forrester Research stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Forrester Research's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Forrester Research stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0366% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Forrester Research stocks, roughly 37 stocks are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the stock price and a discouraging interest in betting against Forrester Research.

Have Forrester Research stocks ever split?

Forrester Research stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 February 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Forrester Research stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Forrester Research stocks which in turn could have impacted Forrester Research's stock price.

Forrester Research stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Forrester Research's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $30.88 up to $47.44. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FORR.US volatility(beta: 1.08)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Forrester Research's is 1.0767. This would suggest that Forrester Research's stocks are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
