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. Check out the Twitter P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA
Twitter's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 215x. In other words, Twitter shares trade at around 215x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United States stock markets on average as of November 10, 2023 (20.44). 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, Twitter's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the industry or those of similar companies.
Twitter's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.64. 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 Twitter'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 Twitter's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.
Twitter's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $211 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Twitter'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.
