Is Shutterstock under- or over-valued?
Valuing Shutterstock stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Shutterstock's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Shutterstock's P/E ratio
Shutterstock's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 41x. In other words, Shutterstock shares trade at around 41x 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.
Shutterstock's PEG ratio
Shutterstock's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.65. 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 Shutterstock's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Shutterstock's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $143.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Shutterstock's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$719.4 million|
|Operating margin TTM||18.19%|
|Gross profit TTM||$408.3 million|

Shorting Shutterstock shares
There are currently 1.5 million Shutterstock shares held short by investors – that's known as Shutterstock's "short interest". This figure is 5.5% down from 1.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Shutterstock shares can be evaluated.
Shutterstock's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Shutterstock's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Shutterstock shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Shutterstock shares traded daily (recently around 219986.48255814). Shutterstock's SIR currently stands at 6.88. In other words for every 100,000 Shutterstock shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6880 shares are currently held short.
However Shutterstock's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Shutterstock shares, or, against the total number of tradable Shutterstock shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Shutterstock's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Shutterstock shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0643% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Shutterstock shares, roughly 64 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 Shutterstock.

Shutterstock share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 27.94% of net profits
Recently Shutterstock has paid out, on average, around 27.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Shutterstock shareholders could enjoy a 0.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Shutterstock's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.
While Shutterstock's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Shutterstock may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Shutterstock's most recent dividend payout was on 16 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Shutterstock share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Shutterstock's shares have ranged in value from as little as $45.3761 up to $108.96. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Shutterstock's is 1.0936. This would suggest that Shutterstock'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).
