Is Dropbox under- or over-valued?

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

Dropbox's PEG ratio

Dropbox's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4743. 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 Dropbox's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dropbox's EBITDA

Dropbox's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $378.2 million.

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

Shorting Dropbox shares

There are currently 20.1 million Dropbox shares held short by investors – that's known as Dropbox's "short interest". This figure is 0.2% down from 20.2 million last month.

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

Dropbox's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dropbox's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dropbox shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dropbox shares traded daily (recently around 3.2 million). Dropbox's SIR currently stands at 6.35. In other words for every 100,000 Dropbox shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6350 shares are currently held short.

However Dropbox's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dropbox shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dropbox shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dropbox's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dropbox shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0705% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dropbox shares, roughly 71 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Dropbox.
