Is T-Mobile US under- or over-valued?

Valuing T-Mobile US stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of T-Mobile US's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

T-Mobile US's P/E ratio

T-Mobile US's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, T-Mobile US shares trade at around 38x 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.

T-Mobile US's PEG ratio

T-Mobile US's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1319. 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 T-Mobile US's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

T-Mobile US's EBITDA

T-Mobile US's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$27.1 billion (£19.7 billion).

Shorting T-Mobile US shares

There are currently 16.1 million T-Mobile US shares held short by investors – that's known as T-Mobile US's "short interest". This figure is 26.6% down from 21.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting T-Mobile US shares can be evaluated.

T-Mobile US's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

T-Mobile US's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of T-Mobile US shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of T-Mobile US shares traded daily (recently around 5.8 million). T-Mobile US's SIR currently stands at 2.79. In other words for every 100,000 T-Mobile US shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2790 shares are currently held short.

However T-Mobile US's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of T-Mobile US shares, or, against the total number of tradable T-Mobile US shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case T-Mobile US's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 T-Mobile US shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0232% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable T-Mobile US shares, roughly 23 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 T-Mobile US.
