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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 134x. In other words, LendingTree shares trade at around 134x 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.
LendingTree's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 14.8977. 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.
LendingTree's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$54.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a LendingTree's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.8 million LendingTree shares held short by investors – that's known as LendingTree's "short interest". This figure is 13% up from 1.6 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) is the quantity of LendingTree shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LendingTree shares traded daily (recently around 330978.22141561). LendingTree's SIR currently stands at 5.51. In other words for every 100,000 LendingTree shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5510 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 0.2771% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LendingTree shares, roughly 277 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.

We're not expecting LendingTree to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, LendingTree's shares have ranged in value from as little as $175.01 up to $372.64. 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 LendingTree's is 1.5786. 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).
