Is Expedia Group under- or over-valued?

Shorting Expedia Group shares

There are currently 8.1 million Expedia Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Expedia Group's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% down from 8.2 million last month.

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

Expedia Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Expedia Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Expedia Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Expedia Group shares traded daily (recently around 2.3 million). Expedia Group's SIR currently stands at 3.55. In other words for every 100,000 Expedia Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3550 shares are currently held short.

However Expedia Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Expedia Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Expedia Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Expedia Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Expedia Group shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0588% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Expedia Group shares, roughly 59 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 Expedia Group.

Expedia Group share dividends

We're not expecting Expedia Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Expedia Group's shares ever split?

Expedia Group's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 20 December 2011. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Expedia Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Expedia Group shares which in turn could have impacted Expedia Group's share price.

Expedia Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Expedia Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$90.52 up to US$187.93. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EXPE.US volatility(beta: 1.61)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Expedia Group's is 1.6074. This would suggest that Expedia Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
