Is Palantir under- or over-valued?

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

PEG ratio

Palantir's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.2382. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.

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

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

There are currently 72.4 million Palantir shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 17.9% up from 61.4 million last month.

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

Short interest ratio (SIR)

Palantir's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Palantir shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Palantir shares traded daily (recently around 57.5 million). Palantir's SIR currently stands at 1.26. In other words for every 100,000 Palantir shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1260 shares are currently held short.

However Palantir's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Palantir shares, or, against the total number of tradable Palantir shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Palantir's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Palantir shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0429% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Palantir shares, roughly 43 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 Palantir.
