Is Bumble 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.

P/E ratio

Bumble's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 430x. In other words, Bumble shares trade at around 430x 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, Bumble's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the software-application industry or those of similar companies.


Bumble's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $130 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Bumble'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.


Revenue TTM $684.8 million
Operating margin TTM 3.61%
Gross profit TTM $424.8 million
Return on assets TTM 1.06%
Return on equity TTM -13.5%

How to short and sell Bumble shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "BMBL.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 6.7 million Bumble shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 7.5% down from 7.2 million last month.

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

Short interest ratio (SIR)

Bumble's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bumble shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bumble shares traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). Bumble's SIR currently stands at 2.67. In other words for every 100,000 Bumble shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2670 shares are currently held short.

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

However Bumble's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bumble shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bumble shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bumble's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bumble shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0881% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bumble shares, roughly 88 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 Bumble.
