Is Booking under- or over-valued?

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

Booking's P/E ratio

Booking's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 231x. In other words, Booking stocks trade at around 231x 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 stocks or simply that they're over-valued.

Booking's PEG ratio

Booking's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.2527. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Booking's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Booking's EBITDA

Booking's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$979 million.

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

  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "BKNG.US"

There are currently 823,704 Booking stocks held short by investors – that's known as Booking's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% up from 808,589 last month.

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

Booking's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Booking's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Booking stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Booking stocks traded daily (recently around 325574.70355731). Booking's SIR currently stands at 2.53. In other words for every 100,000 Booking stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2530 stocks are currently held short.

However Booking's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Booking stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Booking stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Booking's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Booking stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0201% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Booking stocks, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Booking.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Booking.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Booking's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 26.52

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Booking is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Booking's environmental score

Environmental score: 7.88/100

Have Booking stocks ever split?

Booking stocks were split on a 1:6 basis on 16 June 2003. So if you had owned 6 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Booking stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Booking stocks which in turn could have impacted Booking's stock price.

Booking stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Booking's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $1589 up to $2516. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BKNG.US volatility(beta: 1.26)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Booking's is 1.2626. This would suggest that Booking's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
