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

GoodRx's P/E ratio

GoodRx's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 217x. In other words, GoodRx shares trade at around 217x recent earnings.

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

However, GoodRx's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the health information services industry or those of similar companies.

GoodRx's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$176.4 million.

Shorting GoodRx shares

There are currently 1.9 million GoodRx shares held short by investors – that's known as GoodRx's "short interest". This figure is up from 0 last month.

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

GoodRx's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

GoodRx's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GoodRx shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GoodRx shares traded daily (recently around 8.7 million). GoodRx's SIR currently stands at 0.22. In other words for every 100,000 GoodRx shares traded daily on the market, roughly 220 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare GoodRx's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However GoodRx's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GoodRx shares, or, against the total number of tradable GoodRx shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GoodRx's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GoodRx shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0449% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GoodRx shares, roughly 45 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 GoodRx.
