Is Glu Mobile under- or over-valued?

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

Glu Mobile's P/E ratio

Glu Mobile's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 210x. In other words, Glu Mobile shares trade at around 210x 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.

Glu Mobile's PEG ratio

Glu Mobile's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1552. 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 Glu Mobile's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Glu Mobile's EBITDA

Glu Mobile's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $14.6 million (£0.0 million).

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

How to short and sell Glu Mobile shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "GLUU.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 16.8 million Glu Mobile shares held short by investors – that's known as Glu Mobile's "short interest". This figure is 4.8% down from 17.6 million last month.

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

Glu Mobile's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Glu Mobile's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Glu Mobile shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Glu Mobile shares traded daily (recently around 3.2 million). Glu Mobile's SIR currently stands at 5.3. In other words for every 100,000 Glu Mobile shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5300 shares are currently held short.

However Glu Mobile's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Glu Mobile shares, or, against the total number of tradable Glu Mobile shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Glu Mobile's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Glu Mobile shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1323% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Glu Mobile shares, roughly 132 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Glu Mobile.

GLUU.US volatility(beta: 0.94)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
