Is Twitter under- or over-valued?

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

Twitter's PEG ratio

Twitter's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.64. 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 Twitter's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Twitter's EBITDA

Twitter's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $632.3 million.

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

Shorting Twitter shares

There are currently 28.3 million Twitter shares held short by investors – that's known as Twitter's "short interest". This figure is 16% down from 33.7 million last month.

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

Twitter's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Twitter's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Twitter shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Twitter shares traded daily (recently around 16.0 million). Twitter's SIR currently stands at 1.77. In other words for every 100,000 Twitter shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1770 shares are currently held short.

However Twitter's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Twitter shares, or, against the total number of tradable Twitter shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Twitter's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Twitter shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0407% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Twitter shares, roughly 41 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 Twitter.
