Valuing Expedia Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Expedia Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Expedia Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Expedia Group shares trade at around 15x 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.
Expedia Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 8.7169. 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 Expedia Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Expedia Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$58 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Expedia Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 14.3 million Expedia Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Expedia Group's "short interest". This figure is 6% down from 15.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Expedia Group shares can be evaluated.
Expedia Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Expedia Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Expedia Group shares traded daily (recently around 3.0 million). Expedia Group's SIR currently stands at 4.71. In other words for every 100,000 Expedia Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4710 shares are currently held short.
However Expedia Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Expedia Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Expedia Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Expedia Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Expedia Group shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1201% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Expedia Group shares, roughly 120 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 Expedia Group.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Expedia Group.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 22.91
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Expedia Group's overall score of 22.91 (as at 08/01/2020) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 30th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Expedia Group is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 1.06/100
Social score: 8.06/100
Governance score: 3.79/100
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Expedia Group scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Expedia Group has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||22.91|
|Total ESG percentile||30.04|
|Level of controversy||2|
Dividend payout ratio: 35.01% of net profits
Recently Expedia Group has paid out, on average, around 35.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Expedia Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Expedia Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.36 per share.
While Expedia Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Expedia Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Expedia Group's most recent dividend payout was on 26 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Expedia Group's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 21 December 2011. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Expedia Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Expedia Group shares which in turn could have impacted Expedia Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Expedia Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $40.76 up to $139.88. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Expedia Group's is 1.6399. This would suggest that Expedia Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
