Is Stamps-com under- or over-valued?
Valuing Stamps-com stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Stamps-com's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Stamps-com's P/E ratio
Stamps-com's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, Stamps-com shares trade at around 32x 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.
Stamps-com's PEG ratio
Stamps-com's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0924. 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 Stamps-com's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Stamps-com's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $244.1 million.

Shorting Stamps-com shares
There are currently 724,498 Stamps-com shares held short by investors – that's known as Stamps-com's "short interest". This figure is 6.2% down from 772,745 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Stamps-com shares can be evaluated.
Stamps-com's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Stamps-com's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Stamps-com shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Stamps-com shares traded daily (recently around 159933.33333333). Stamps-com's SIR currently stands at 4.53. In other words for every 100,000 Stamps-com shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4530 shares are currently held short.
However Stamps-com's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Stamps-com shares, or, against the total number of tradable Stamps-com shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Stamps-com's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Stamps-com shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.041% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Stamps-com shares, roughly 41 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 Stamps-com.

Have Stamps-com's shares ever split?
Stamps-com's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 11 May 2004. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Stamps-com shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stamps-com shares which in turn could have impacted Stamps-com's share price.
