Is Pinterest 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

Pinterest's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 77x. In other words, Pinterest shares trade at around 77x 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.

PEG ratio

Pinterest's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.494. A PEG ratio over 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares are overvalued at the current rate of growth, or may anticipate an acceleration in growth.

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

EBITDA

Pinterest's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $318.6 million (£0.0 million).

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

Do Pinterest shares pay dividends?

We're not expecting Pinterest to pay a dividend over the next 12 months. Typically it's companies that have been around for longer that pay dividends (Pinterest had its IPO on 18 April 2019). However, you can browse other dividend-paying shares in our guide.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Pinterest's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.14 up to $66. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PINS.US volatility(beta: 1.09)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Pinterest's is 1.0903. This would suggest that Pinterest'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).
