Is Expedia under- or over-valued?

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

Expedia's PEG ratio

Expedia's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 27.9693. 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 Expedia's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Expedia's EBITDA

Expedia's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $58 million.

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

Shorting Expedia shares

There are currently 8.1 million Expedia shares held short by investors – that's known as Expedia's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% down from 8.2 million last month.

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

Expedia's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Expedia's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Expedia shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Expedia shares traded daily (recently around 2.3 million). Expedia's SIR currently stands at 3.55. In other words for every 100,000 Expedia shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3550 shares are currently held short.

However Expedia's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Expedia shares, or, against the total number of tradable Expedia shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Expedia's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Expedia shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0588% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Expedia shares, roughly 59 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 Expedia.

Expedia'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 Expedia.

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

Expedia's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 21.93

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Expedia's overall score of 21.93 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 31st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Expedia's environmental score

Environmental score: 1.06/100

Expedia's social score

Social score: 8.06/100

Expedia's governance score

Governance score: 7.32/100

Expedia's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Expedia scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Expedia has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Expedia share dividends

We're not expecting Expedia to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Expedia's shares ever split?

Expedia's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 20 December 2011. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Expedia shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Expedia shares which in turn could have impacted Expedia's share price.

Expedia share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Expedia's shares have ranged in value from as little as $90.52 up to $187.93. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EXPE.US volatility(beta: 1.61)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Expedia's is 1.6074. This would suggest that Expedia's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
