Is LendingTree under- or over-valued?

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

LendingTree's P/E ratio

LendingTree's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 145x. In other words, LendingTree shares trade at around 145x 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.

LendingTree's PEG ratio

LendingTree's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.5488. 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 LendingTree's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

LendingTree's EBITDA

LendingTree's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $53.3 million.

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

TREE.US volatility(beta: 1.52)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while LendingTree's is 1.517. This would suggest that LendingTree's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
