How to buy shares in Airbnb

  1. Compare share trading platforms. To buy shares in a company listed in the US from Australia you'll need to find a trading platform that offers access to US stock markets. Look for a platform with low brokerage and foreign exchange fees.
  2. Open and fund your brokerage account. Complete an application with your personal and financial details, which will typically include your ID and tax file number. Fund your account with a bank transfer, credit card or debit card.
  3. Search for Airbnb. Find the share by name or ticker symbol: ABNB. Research its history to confirm it's a solid investment that matches your financial goals.
  4. Purchase now or later. Buy today with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until Airbnb reaches your desired price. To spread out your risk, look into dollar-cost averaging, which smooths out buying using consistent intervals and amounts.
  5. Decide on how many to buy. At last close price of US$147.88, weigh your budget against a diversified portfolio that can minimise risk through the market's ups and downs. You may be able to buy a fractional share of Airbnb, depending on your broker.

Is it a good time to buy Airbnb stock?

It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Airbnb under- or over-valued?

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

Airbnb's P/E ratio

Airbnb's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Airbnb shares trade at around 20x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

However, Airbnb's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the travel services industry or those of similar companies.

Airbnb's PEG ratio

Airbnb's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 10.0401. 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 Airbnb's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, it's sensible to consider Airbnb's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Airbnb's EBITDA

Airbnb's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$1.7 billion (£1.3 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Airbnb's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

To put Airbnb's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

Airbnb share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Airbnb's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$113.235 up to US$170.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ABNB.US volatility(beta: 1.19)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Airbnb's is 1.188. This would suggest that Airbnb's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

To put Airbnb's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
