Since the stock market crash in March caused by coronavirus, Netflix's stock price has had significant positive movement.

Its last market close was $573.14, which is 33.69% up on its pre-crash value of $380.07 and 97.46% up on the lowest point reached during the March crash when the stocks fell as low as $290.25.

If you had bought $1,000 worth of Netflix stocks at the start of February 2020, those stocks would have been worth $1,005.15 at the bottom of the March crash, and if you held on to them, then as of the last market close they'd be worth $1,599.06.

Is Netflix under- or over-valued?

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

Netflix's P/E ratio

Netflix's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 61x. In other words, Netflix stocks trade at around 61x 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.

Netflix's PEG ratio

Netflix's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4307. 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 Netflix's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Netflix's EBITDA

Netflix's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$6.2 billion.

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

How to short and sell Netflix stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "NFLX.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 10.2 million Netflix stocks held short by investors – that's known as Netflix's "short interest". This figure is 8.3% up from 9.4 million last month.

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

Netflix's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Netflix's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Netflix stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Netflix stocks traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). Netflix's SIR currently stands at 4.09. In other words for every 100,000 Netflix stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4090 stocks are currently held short.

However Netflix's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Netflix stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Netflix stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Netflix's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Netflix stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0233% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Netflix stocks, roughly 23 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 Netflix.

Netflix's environmental, social and governance track record

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 Netflix.

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

Netflix's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 21.55

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Netflix's overall score of 21.55 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 19th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Netflix 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.).

Netflix's environmental score

Environmental score: 3.16/100

Netflix's environmental score of 3.16 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Netflix is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Netflix's social score

Social score: 10.56/100

Netflix's social score of 10.56 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Netflix is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Netflix's governance score

Governance score: 15.32/100

Netflix's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Netflix is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Netflix's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Netflix scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Netflix has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

Netflix Inc was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Total ESG score 21.55
Total ESG percentile 19.25

Have Netflix stocks ever split?

Netflix stocks were split on a 7:1 basis on 15 July 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 7 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Netflix stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 85.7% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Netflix stocks which in turn could have impacted Netflix's stock price.

Netflix stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Netflix's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $463.41 up to $615.6. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NFLX.US volatility(beta: 0.76)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 Netflix's is 0.7593. This would suggest that Netflix's stocks are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
