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 88x. In other words, Match Group shares trade at around 88x 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 2.9734. 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

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 4.5% down from 13.6 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 1.9 million). Match Group's SIR currently stands at 6.71. In other words for every 100,000 Match Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6710 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 0.0495% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Match Group shares, roughly 50 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 Match Group.
