Is Vail Resorts under- or over-valued?

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

Vail Resorts's P/E ratio

Vail Resorts's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 109x. In other words, Vail Resorts shares trade at around 109x recent earnings.

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

Vail Resorts's PEG ratio

Vail Resorts's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2. 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 Vail Resorts's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Vail Resorts's EBITDA

Vail Resorts's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $529.7 million.

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

Shorting Vail Resorts shares

There are currently 895,461 Vail Resorts shares held short by investors – that's known as Vail Resorts's "short interest". This figure is 22.2% down from 1.2 million last month.

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

Vail Resorts's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Vail Resorts's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vail Resorts shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vail Resorts shares traded daily (recently around 209709.83606557). Vail Resorts's SIR currently stands at 4.27. In other words for every 100,000 Vail Resorts shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4270 shares are currently held short.

However Vail Resorts's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vail Resorts shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vail Resorts shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vail Resorts's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vail Resorts shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0225% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vail Resorts shares, roughly 23 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 Vail Resorts.
