Is it a good time to buy Chipotle Mexican Grill stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Chipotle Mexican Grill under- or over-valued?

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

Chipotle Mexican Grill's P/E ratio

Chipotle Mexican Grill's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 179x. In other words, Chipotle Mexican Grill shares trade at around 179x 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, Chipotle Mexican Grill's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the restaurants industry or those of similar companies.

Chipotle Mexican Grill's PEG ratio

Chipotle Mexican Grill's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.5343. 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 Chipotle Mexican Grill'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 Chipotle Mexican Grill's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Chipotle Mexican Grill's EBITDA

Chipotle Mexican Grill's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $546.1 million.

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

To put Chipotle Mexican Grill's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

There are currently 809,727 Chipotle Mexican Grill shares held short by investors – that's known as Chipotle Mexican Grill's "short interest". This figure is 14.5% down from 947,053 last month.

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

Chipotle Mexican Grill's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Chipotle Mexican Grill's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chipotle Mexican Grill shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chipotle Mexican Grill shares traded daily (recently around 268121.52317881). Chipotle Mexican Grill's SIR currently stands at 3.02. In other words for every 100,000 Chipotle Mexican Grill shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3020 shares are currently held short.

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

However Chipotle Mexican Grill's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chipotle Mexican Grill shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chipotle Mexican Grill shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chipotle Mexican Grill's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chipotle Mexican Grill shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0325% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chipotle Mexican Grill shares, roughly 33 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 Chipotle Mexican Grill.
