Is Pinterest under- or over-valued?

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

Pinterest's P/E ratio

Pinterest's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 73x. In other words, Pinterest shares trade at around 73x 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.

Pinterest's PEG ratio

Pinterest's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3903. 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 Pinterest's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Pinterest's EBITDA

Pinterest's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $318.6 million.

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

PINS.US volatility(beta: 1.09)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Pinterest's is 1.0903. This would suggest that Pinterest's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
