Is Zillow Group under- or over-valued?

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

Zillow Group's PEG ratio

Zillow Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.73. 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 Zillow Group'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 Zillow Group shares

There are currently 23.7 million Zillow Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Zillow Group's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% down from 24.4 million last month.

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

Zillow Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Zillow Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zillow Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zillow Group shares traded daily (recently around 3.4 million). Zillow Group's SIR currently stands at 6.98. In other words for every 100,000 Zillow Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6980 shares are currently held short.

However Zillow Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zillow Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zillow Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zillow Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zillow Group shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zillow Group 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 Zillow Group.
