Is Beyond Meat under- or over-valued?

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

Beyond Meat's P/E ratio

Beyond Meat's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 600x. In other words, Beyond Meat shares trade at around 600x 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.

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

Beyond Meat's PEG ratio

Beyond Meat's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.0582. 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 Beyond Meat's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

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

Beyond Meat's EBITDA

Beyond Meat's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $699,000.

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

To put Beyond Meat's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

How to short and sell Beyond Meat shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "BYND.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 13.7 million Beyond Meat shares held short by investors – that's known as Beyond Meat's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% up from 13.5 million last month.

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

Beyond Meat's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Beyond Meat's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Beyond Meat shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Beyond Meat shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). Beyond Meat's SIR currently stands at 4.94. In other words for every 100,000 Beyond Meat shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4940 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Beyond Meat's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Beyond Meat's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Beyond Meat shares, or, against the total number of tradable Beyond Meat shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Beyond Meat's short interest could be expressed as 0.22% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Beyond Meat shares in existence, roughly 220 shares are currently held short) or 0.2438% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Beyond Meat shares, roughly 244 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 Beyond Meat.
