Is Express under- or over-valued?

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

Express's PEG ratio

Express's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.14. 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 Express's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Express's EBITDA

Express's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $72.7 million.

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

Shorting Express shares

There are currently 3.1 million Express shares held short by investors – that's known as Express's "short interest". This figure is 5.5% down from 3.3 million last month.

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

Express's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Express's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Express shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Express shares traded daily (recently around 4.4 million). Express's SIR currently stands at 0.72. In other words for every 100,000 Express shares traded daily on the market, roughly 720 shares are currently held short.

However Express's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Express shares, or, against the total number of tradable Express shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Express's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Express shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0482% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Express shares, roughly 48 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 Express.

Express share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Express's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.57 up to $9.05. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EXPR.US volatility(beta: 1.91)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Express's is 1.9116. This would suggest that Express's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
