Is Shopify under- or over-valued?

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

Shopify's P/E ratio

Shopify's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 714x. In other words, Shopify shares trade at around 714x 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.

Shopify's EBITDA

Shopify's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$59.2 million.

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

How to short and sell Shopify shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "SHOP.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 1.1 million Shopify shares held short by investors – that's known as Shopify's "short interest". This figure is 22.4% down from 1.5 million last month.

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

Shopify's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Shopify's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Shopify shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Shopify shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Shopify's SIR currently stands at 0.78. In other words for every 100,000 Shopify shares traded daily on the market, roughly 780 shares are currently held short.

However Shopify's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Shopify shares, or, against the total number of tradable Shopify shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Shopify's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Shopify shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0185% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Shopify shares, roughly 19 shares are currently held short).

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

Shopify share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Shopify's shares have ranged in value from as little as $305.3001 up to $1285.1851. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SHOP.US volatility(beta: 1.6)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 Shopify's is 1.5951. This would suggest that Shopify's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
