Is Match Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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 66x. In other words, Match Group shares trade at around 66x 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 1.6228. 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 $897.2 million.

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

We're not expecting Match Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Match Group's shares ever split?

Match Group's shares were split on a 3502:1000 basis on 30 June 2020. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3502 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Match Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 71.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Match Group shares which in turn could have impacted Match Group's share price.

Match Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Match Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $118.51 up to $182. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

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).
