Is ExlService under- or over-valued?

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

ExlService's P/E ratio

ExlService's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 36x. In other words, ExlService shares trade at around 36x 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.

ExlService's PEG ratio

ExlService's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2878. 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 ExlService's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ExlService's EBITDA

ExlService's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $154.9 million.

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

Shorting ExlService shares

There are currently 932,380 ExlService shares held short by investors – that's known as ExlService's "short interest". This figure is 6.9% down from 1.0 million last month.

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

ExlService's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ExlService's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ExlService shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ExlService shares traded daily (recently around 194651.35699374). ExlService's SIR currently stands at 4.79. In other words for every 100,000 ExlService shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4790 shares are currently held short.

However ExlService's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ExlService shares, or, against the total number of tradable ExlService shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ExlService's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ExlService shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0387% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ExlService shares, roughly 39 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 ExlService.
