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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 11.5 million Express shares held short by investors – that's known as Express's "short interest". This figure is 20.3% down from 14.4 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) is the quantity of Express shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Express shares traded daily (recently around 4.1 million). Express's SIR currently stands at 2.79. In other words for every 100,000 Express shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2790 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 0.18% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Express shares in existence, roughly 180 shares are currently held short) or 0.215% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Express shares, roughly 215 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.

We're not expecting Express to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Express's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.61 up to $6.24. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Express's is 2.059. This would suggest that Express's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
