Is Travelzoo under- or over-valued?

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

Travelzoo's P/E ratio

Travelzoo's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Travelzoo shares trade at around 13x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Travelzoo's PEG ratio

Travelzoo's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9173. 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 Travelzoo's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Travelzoo's EBITDA

Travelzoo's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.9 million.

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

Shorting Travelzoo shares

There are currently 210,001 Travelzoo shares held short by investors – that's known as Travelzoo's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% up from 202,835 last month.

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

Travelzoo's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Travelzoo's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Travelzoo shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Travelzoo shares traded daily (recently around 113514.05405405). Travelzoo's SIR currently stands at 1.85. In other words for every 100,000 Travelzoo shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1850 shares are currently held short.

However Travelzoo's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Travelzoo shares, or, against the total number of tradable Travelzoo shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Travelzoo's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Travelzoo shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0309% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Travelzoo shares, roughly 31 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 Travelzoo.
