Is IAC/InterActiveCorp under- or over-valued?

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

IAC/InterActiveCorp's P/E ratio

IAC/InterActiveCorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 194x. In other words, IAC/InterActiveCorp shares trade at around 194x 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.

IAC/InterActiveCorp's PEG ratio

IAC/InterActiveCorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.9134. 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 IAC/InterActiveCorp'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 IAC/InterActiveCorp shares

There are currently 1.8 million IAC/InterActiveCorp shares held short by investors – that's known as IAC/InterActiveCorp's "short interest". This figure is 10.2% up from 1.6 million last month.

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

IAC/InterActiveCorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

IAC/InterActiveCorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IAC/InterActiveCorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IAC/InterActiveCorp shares traded daily (recently around 612873.97260274). IAC/InterActiveCorp's SIR currently stands at 2.92. In other words for every 100,000 IAC/InterActiveCorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2920 shares are currently held short.

However IAC/InterActiveCorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IAC/InterActiveCorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable IAC/InterActiveCorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IAC/InterActiveCorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IAC/InterActiveCorp shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0516% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IAC/InterActiveCorp shares, roughly 52 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 IAC/InterActiveCorp.
