Is Zynga under- or over-valued?

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

Zynga's P/E ratio

Zynga's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 139x. In other words, Zynga shares trade at around 139x 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.

Zynga's PEG ratio

Zynga's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.28. 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 Zynga's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Zynga's EBITDA

Zynga's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$138.3 million.

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

Shorting Zynga shares

There are currently 74.0 million Zynga shares held short by investors – that's known as Zynga's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% down from 79.1 million last month.

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

Zynga's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Zynga's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zynga shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zynga shares traded daily (recently around 17.0 million). Zynga's SIR currently stands at 4.36. In other words for every 100,000 Zynga shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4360 shares are currently held short.

However Zynga's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zynga shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zynga shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zynga's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zynga shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0729% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zynga shares, roughly 73 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 Zynga.

Zynga share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Zynga's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.18 up to $12.32. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Zynga's is 0.0811. This would suggest that Zynga's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
