Is Ryanair under- or over-valued?
Valuing Ryanair stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ryanair's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ryanair's PEG ratio
Ryanair's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 70.7513. 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 Ryanair's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Ryanair shares
There are currently 575,326 Ryanair shares held short by investors – that's known as Ryanair's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% down from 586,245 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ryanair shares can be evaluated.
Ryanair's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Ryanair's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ryanair shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ryanair shares traded daily (recently around 257993.72197309). Ryanair's SIR currently stands at 2.23. In other words for every 100,000 Ryanair shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2230 shares are currently held short.
However Ryanair's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ryanair shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ryanair shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ryanair's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ryanair shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0027% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ryanair shares, roughly 3 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 Ryanair.

Ryanair share dividends
We're not expecting Ryanair to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Ryanair's shares ever split?
Ryanair's shares were split on a 975:1000 basis on 27 October 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 975 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ryanair shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.6% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ryanair shares which in turn could have impacted Ryanair's share price.
Ryanair share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Ryanair's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$63.85 up to US$121.63. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Ryanair's is 1.5688. This would suggest that Ryanair's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
