Is DocuSign under- or over-valued?

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

DocuSign's PEG ratio

DocuSign's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.0285. 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 DocuSign's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, it's sensible to consider DocuSign's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

How to short and sell DocuSign shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "DOCU.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 8.0 million DocuSign shares held short by investors – that's known as DocuSign's "short interest". This figure is 8% down from 8.7 million last month.

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

DocuSign's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

DocuSign's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DocuSign shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DocuSign shares traded daily (recently around 4.2 million). DocuSign's SIR currently stands at 1.88. In other words for every 100,000 DocuSign shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1880 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare DocuSign's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However DocuSign's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DocuSign shares, or, against the total number of tradable DocuSign shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DocuSign's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DocuSign shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0507% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DocuSign shares, roughly 51 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 DocuSign.

DOCU.US volatility(beta: 0.87)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

To put DocuSign's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
