Is Pinterest under- or over-valued?

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

Pinterest's P/E ratio

Pinterest's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 197x. In other words, Pinterest shares trade at around 197x 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.

Shorting Pinterest shares

There are currently 21.1 million Pinterest shares held short by investors – that's known as Pinterest's "short interest". This figure is 60.1% up from 13.2 million last month.

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

Pinterest's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Pinterest's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pinterest shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pinterest shares traded daily (recently around 15.0 million). Pinterest's SIR currently stands at 1.41. In other words for every 100,000 Pinterest shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1410 shares are currently held short.

However Pinterest's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pinterest shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pinterest shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pinterest's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pinterest shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0398% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pinterest shares, roughly 40 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 Pinterest.
