Is Expedia under- or over-valued?
Valuing Expedia stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Expedia's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Expedia's P/E ratio
Expedia's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 73x. In other words, Expedia shares trade at around 73x 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.
Expedia's PEG ratio
Expedia's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.2732. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Expedia's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Expedia's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$703 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Expedia's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Have Expedia's shares ever split?
Expedia's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 21 December 2011. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Expedia shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Expedia shares which in turn could have impacted Expedia's share price.
Expedia share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Expedia's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$92.22 up to US$217.72. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Expedia's is 1.5377. This would suggest that Expedia's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
