Is LendingTree under- or over-valued?

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

LendingTree's PEG ratio

LendingTree's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.8679. 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 LendingTree'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 LendingTree shares

There are currently 1.8 million LendingTree shares held short by investors – that's known as LendingTree's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% down from 1.9 million last month.

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

LendingTree's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

LendingTree's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LendingTree shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LendingTree shares traded daily (recently around 187186.6598778). LendingTree's SIR currently stands at 9.82. In other words for every 100,000 LendingTree shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9820 shares are currently held short.

However LendingTree's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LendingTree shares, or, against the total number of tradable LendingTree shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LendingTree's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LendingTree shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1601% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LendingTree shares, roughly 160 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 LendingTree.

LendingTree share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, LendingTree's shares have ranged in value from as little as $130.02 up to $372.64. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TREE.US volatility(beta: 1.52)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while LendingTree's is 1.5233. This would suggest that LendingTree's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
