Is TripAdvisor under- or over-valued?

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

TripAdvisor's PEG ratio

TripAdvisor's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 44.1228. 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 TripAdvisor'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 TripAdvisor shares

There are currently 12.2 million TripAdvisor shares held short by investors – that's known as TripAdvisor's "short interest". This figure is 0.3% up from 12.2 million last month.

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

TripAdvisor's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TripAdvisor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TripAdvisor shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TripAdvisor shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). TripAdvisor's SIR currently stands at 5.19. In other words for every 100,000 TripAdvisor shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5190 shares are currently held short.

However TripAdvisor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TripAdvisor shares, or, against the total number of tradable TripAdvisor shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TripAdvisor's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TripAdvisor shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.136% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TripAdvisor shares, roughly 136 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 TripAdvisor.
