Is Airbnb under- or over-valued?

Valuing a stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge value. Check out the Airbnb P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA.

Airbnb's current stock price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Airbnb's stocks trade at around 20x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United States stock markets on average as of November 09, 2023 (20.44).

However, Airbnb's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the industry or those of similar companies.

Airbnb's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 10.0401. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Airbnb's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, it's sensible to consider Airbnb's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Airbnb's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $1.7 billion.

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

To put that into context you can compare it against similar companies.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Airbnb's shares have ranged in value from as little as $113.235 up to $170.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ABNB.US volatility(beta: 1.19)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 Airbnb's is 1.188. This would suggest that Airbnb's shares 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).
