Is Twitter under- or over-valued?

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

Twitter's P/E ratio

Twitter's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 133x. In other words, Twitter stocks trade at around 133x 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.

Twitter's PEG ratio

Twitter's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.64. 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 Twitter's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Twitter's EBITDA

Twitter's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$947.4 million.

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

How to short and sell Twitter stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "TWTR.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 22.8 million Twitter stocks held short by investors – that's known as Twitter's "short interest". This figure is 3% up from 22.1 million last month.

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

Twitter's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Twitter's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Twitter stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Twitter stocks traded daily (recently around 8.3 million). Twitter's SIR currently stands at 2.74. In other words for every 100,000 Twitter stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2740 stocks are currently held short.

However Twitter's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Twitter stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Twitter stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Twitter's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Twitter stocks in existence, roughly 30 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0294% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Twitter stocks, roughly 29 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 Twitter.

Twitter'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 Twitter.

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

Twitter's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 25.25

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Twitter's overall score of 25.25 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 38th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Twitter's environmental score

Environmental score: 4.5/100

Twitter's environmental score of 4.5 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Twitter is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Twitter's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Twitter scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Twitter hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
