Monday, April 18: Twitter's board has enacted a shareholder rights plan, also known as a poison pill, that would offer shares to the public at a discount if any single person tries to purchase more than 15% of the company without the board's approval. This would prevent Elon Musk, who has been highly critical of the board, from taking over the company without the board's approval.

Is Twitter stock undervalued or overvalued?

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 137x. In other words, Twitter shares trade at around 137x 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.

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 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 Twitter's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Twitter's EBITDA

Twitter's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $546.5 million.

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

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 12/31/2018) 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 social score

Social score: 13.25/100

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.
