Is Monster Beverage Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Monster Beverage Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Monster Beverage Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Monster Beverage Corporation's P/E ratio
Monster Beverage Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, Monster Beverage Corporation shares trade at around 34x 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.
Monster Beverage Corporation's PEG ratio
Monster Beverage Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.634. 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 Monster Beverage Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Monster Beverage Corporation shares
There are currently 5.1 million Monster Beverage Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Monster Beverage Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2% down from 5.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Monster Beverage Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Monster Beverage Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Monster Beverage Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Monster Beverage Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Monster Beverage Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Monster Beverage Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.51. In other words for every 100,000 Monster Beverage Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2510 shares are currently held short.
However Monster Beverage Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Monster Beverage Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Monster Beverage Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Monster Beverage Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Monster Beverage Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0135% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Monster Beverage Corporation shares, roughly 14 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 Monster Beverage Corporation.
