Is Match Group under- or over-valued?

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

Match Group's P/E ratio

Match Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 81x. In other words, Match Group shares trade at around 81x 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.

Match Group's PEG ratio

Match Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2564. 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 Match Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Match Group's EBITDA

Match Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $863.3 million.

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

Shorting Match Group shares

There are currently 12.9 million Match Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Match Group's "short interest". This figure is 1% up from 12.7 million last month.

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

Match Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Match Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Match Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Match Group shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). Match Group's SIR currently stands at 4.56. In other words for every 100,000 Match Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4560 shares are currently held short.

However Match Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Match Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Match Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Match Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Match Group shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.048% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Match Group shares, roughly 48 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 Match Group.

MTCH.US volatility(beta: 1.21)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 Match Group's is 1.2101. This would suggest that Match Group's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
