Is Take-Two Interactive Software 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

Take-Two Interactive Software's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, Take-Two Interactive Software shares trade at around 30x 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

Take-Two Interactive Software's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.1845. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Take-Two Interactive Software'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

Take-Two Interactive Software's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $850.2 million (£0.0 million).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Take-Two Interactive Software's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 2.4 million Take-Two Interactive Software shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 2.8% down from 2.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Take-Two Interactive Software shares can be evaluated.

Short interest ratio (SIR)

Take-Two Interactive Software's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Take-Two Interactive Software shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Take-Two Interactive Software shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Take-Two Interactive Software's SIR currently stands at 1.96. In other words for every 100,000 Take-Two Interactive Software shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1960 shares are currently held short.

However Take-Two Interactive Software's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Take-Two Interactive Software shares, or, against the total number of tradable Take-Two Interactive Software shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Take-Two Interactive Software's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Take-Two Interactive Software shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0228% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Take-Two Interactive Software shares, roughly 23 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 Take-Two Interactive Software.
