Is Crowdstrike under- or over-valued?

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

Crowdstrike's PEG ratio

Crowdstrike's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 36.8. 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 Crowdstrike's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Crowdstrike shares

There are currently 10.6 million Crowdstrike shares held short by investors – that's known as Crowdstrike's "short interest". This figure is 31% down from 15.4 million last month.

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

Crowdstrike's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Crowdstrike's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Crowdstrike shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Crowdstrike shares traded daily (recently around 4.1 million). Crowdstrike's SIR currently stands at 2.56. In other words for every 100,000 Crowdstrike shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2560 shares are currently held short.

However Crowdstrike's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Crowdstrike shares, or, against the total number of tradable Crowdstrike shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Crowdstrike's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Crowdstrike shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0568% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Crowdstrike shares, roughly 57 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 Crowdstrike.
