Is Twilio under- or over-valued?

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

Twilio's PEG ratio

Twilio's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 29.0192. 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 Twilio'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 Twilio shares

There are currently 4.4 million Twilio shares held short by investors – that's known as Twilio's "short interest". This figure is 18.2% up from 3.7 million last month.

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

Twilio's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Twilio's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Twilio shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Twilio shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Twilio's SIR currently stands at 3.57. In other words for every 100,000 Twilio shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3570 shares are currently held short.

However Twilio's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Twilio shares, or, against the total number of tradable Twilio shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Twilio's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Twilio shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0263% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Twilio shares, roughly 26 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 Twilio.

Twilio share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Twilio's shares have ranged in value from as little as $222.003 up to $457.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TWLO.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 Twilio's is 1.4421. This would suggest that Twilio's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
