Is Weibo Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Weibo Corporation's P/E ratio

Weibo Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Weibo Corporation shares trade at around 18x 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.

Weibo Corporation's PEG ratio

Weibo Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6564. 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 Weibo Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Weibo Corporation's EBITDA

Weibo Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$513.8 million.

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

Shorting Weibo Corporation shares

There are currently 10.5 million Weibo Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Weibo Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 14.3% down from 12.2 million last month.

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

Weibo Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Weibo Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Weibo Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Weibo Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Weibo Corporation's SIR currently stands at 7.72. In other words for every 100,000 Weibo Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7720 shares are currently held short.

However Weibo Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Weibo Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Weibo Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Weibo Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Weibo Corporation shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Weibo Corporation shares, roughly 0 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 Weibo Corporation.
