Is Dominos Pizza under- or over-valued?

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

Dominos Pizza's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 36x. In other words, Dominos Pizza shares trade at around 36x 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.

Dominos Pizza's PEG ratio

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

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

Dominos Pizza's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dominos Pizza's SIR currently stands at 3.28. In other words for every 100,000 Dominos Pizza shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3280 shares are currently held short.

However Dominos Pizza's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dominos Pizza shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dominos Pizza shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dominos Pizza's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dominos Pizza shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0793% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dominos Pizza shares, roughly 79 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 Dominos Pizza.
