Is Marriott International under- or over-valued?

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

Marriott International's P/E ratio

Marriott International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 135x. In other words, Marriott International shares trade at around 135x 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.

Marriott International's PEG ratio

Marriott International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.2454. 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 Marriott International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Marriott International's EBITDA

Marriott International's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.4 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Marriott International's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Marriott International shares

There are currently 4.8 million Marriott International shares held short by investors – that's known as Marriott International's "short interest". This figure is 0.1% down from 4.8 million last month.

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

Marriott International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Marriott International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Marriott International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Marriott International shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Marriott International's SIR currently stands at 2.39. In other words for every 100,000 Marriott International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2390 shares are currently held short.

However Marriott International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Marriott International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Marriott International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Marriott International's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Marriott International shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0169% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Marriott International shares, roughly 17 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 Marriott International.

MAR.US volatility(beta: 1.86)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 Marriott International's is 1.8641. This would suggest that Marriott International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
