Is TriNet Group under- or over-valued?

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

TriNet Group's P/E ratio

TriNet Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, TriNet Group shares trade at around 22x 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.

TriNet Group's PEG ratio

TriNet Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.18. 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 TriNet Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TriNet Group's EBITDA

TriNet Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $404 million.

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

Shorting TriNet Group shares

There are currently 1.3 million TriNet Group shares held short by investors – that's known as TriNet Group's "short interest". This figure is 9.1% down from 1.5 million last month.

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

TriNet Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TriNet Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TriNet Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TriNet Group shares traded daily (recently around 238721.66064982). TriNet Group's SIR currently stands at 5.54. In other words for every 100,000 TriNet Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5540 shares are currently held short.

However TriNet Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TriNet Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable TriNet Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TriNet Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TriNet Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0412% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TriNet Group shares, roughly 41 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 TriNet Group.

TNET.US volatility(beta: 1.44)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while TriNet Group's is 1.4374. This would suggest that TriNet Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
