Is Take-Two Interactive Software under- or over-valued?

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

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Take-Two Interactive Software'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 Take-Two Interactive Software shares

There are currently 3.2 million Take-Two Interactive Software shares held short by investors – that's known as Take-Two Interactive Software's "short interest". This figure is 12.8% down from 3.7 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Take-Two Interactive Software shares can be evaluated.

Take-Two Interactive Software's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Take-Two Interactive Software's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Take-Two Interactive Software shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Take-Two Interactive Software shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Take-Two Interactive Software's SIR currently stands at 2.64. In other words for every 100,000 Take-Two Interactive Software shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2640 shares are currently held short.

However Take-Two Interactive Software's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Take-Two Interactive Software shares, or, against the total number of tradable Take-Two Interactive Software shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Take-Two Interactive Software's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Take-Two Interactive Software shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0318% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Take-Two Interactive Software shares, roughly 32 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 Take-Two Interactive Software.

However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Take-Two Interactive Software shares which in turn could have impacted Take-Two Interactive Software's share price.

Take-Two Interactive Software share price volatility
