Is Caesars Entertainment under- or over-valued?

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

Caesars Entertainment's P/E ratio

Caesars Entertainment's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Caesars Entertainment shares trade at around 17x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Caesars Entertainment's PEG ratio

Caesars Entertainment's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.16. 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 Caesars Entertainment's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Caesars Entertainment's EBITDA

Caesars Entertainment's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$475.3 million.

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

Shorting Caesars Entertainment shares

There are currently 9.6 million Caesars Entertainment shares held short by investors – that's known as Caesars Entertainment's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% up from 9.5 million last month.

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

Caesars Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Caesars Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Caesars Entertainment shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Caesars Entertainment shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). Caesars Entertainment's SIR currently stands at 4.45. In other words for every 100,000 Caesars Entertainment shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4450 shares are currently held short.

However Caesars Entertainment's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Caesars Entertainment shares, or, against the total number of tradable Caesars Entertainment shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Caesars Entertainment's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Caesars Entertainment shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0538% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Caesars Entertainment shares, roughly 54 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 Caesars Entertainment.
