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 217x. In other words, Pinterest stocks trade at around 217x 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.

Pinterest's EBITDA

Pinterest's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$276.2 million.

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

How to short and sell Pinterest stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "PINS.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 15.3 million Pinterest stocks held short by investors – that's known as Pinterest's "short interest". This figure is 23.8% down from 20.0 million last month.

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

Pinterest's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Pinterest's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pinterest stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pinterest stocks traded daily (recently around 10.6 million). Pinterest's SIR currently stands at 1.44. In other words for every 100,000 Pinterest stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1440 stocks are currently held short.

However Pinterest's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pinterest stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Pinterest stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pinterest's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Pinterest stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0276% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Pinterest stocks, roughly 28 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 Pinterest.

Pinterest stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Pinterest's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $35.77 up to $89.9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PINS.US volatility(beta: 1.22)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Pinterest's is 1.2214. This would suggest that Pinterest's stocks 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).
