Is QuinStreet under- or over-valued?

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

QuinStreet's P/E ratio

QuinStreet's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 46x. In other words, QuinStreet shares trade at around 46x 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.

QuinStreet's PEG ratio

QuinStreet's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.58. 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 QuinStreet's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

QuinStreet's EBITDA

QuinStreet's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $20.7 million.

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

Shorting QuinStreet shares

There are currently 1.2 million QuinStreet shares held short by investors – that's known as QuinStreet's "short interest". This figure is 8.9% up from 1.1 million last month.

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

QuinStreet's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

QuinStreet's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of QuinStreet shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of QuinStreet shares traded daily (recently around 279298.82629108). QuinStreet's SIR currently stands at 4.26. In other words for every 100,000 QuinStreet shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4260 shares are currently held short.

However QuinStreet's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of QuinStreet shares, or, against the total number of tradable QuinStreet shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case QuinStreet's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 QuinStreet shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0239% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable QuinStreet shares, roughly 24 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 QuinStreet.
