Is Marathon Digital under- or over-valued?

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

Marathon Digital's P/E ratio

Marathon Digital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, Marathon Digital shares trade at around 35x 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.

Shorting Marathon Digital shares

There are currently 16.6 million Marathon Digital shares held short by investors – that's known as Marathon Digital's "short interest". This figure is 13.7% up from 14.6 million last month.

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

Marathon Digital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Marathon Digital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Marathon Digital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Marathon Digital shares traded daily (recently around 12.5 million). Marathon Digital's SIR currently stands at 1.33. In other words for every 100,000 Marathon Digital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1330 shares are currently held short.

However Marathon Digital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Marathon Digital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Marathon Digital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Marathon Digital's short interest could be expressed as 0.17% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Marathon Digital shares in existence, roughly 170 shares are currently held short) or 0.171% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Marathon Digital shares, roughly 171 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 Marathon Digital.

Marathon Digital share dividends

We're not expecting Marathon Digital to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Marathon Digital's shares ever split?

Marathon Digital's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 7 April 2019. So if you had owned 4 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 Marathon Digital shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Marathon Digital shares which in turn could have impacted Marathon Digital's share price.

Marathon Digital share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Marathon Digital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.27 up to $57.75. 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 Marathon Digital's is 4.4962. This would suggest that Marathon Digital's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
