Is Lands End under- or over-valued?

Lands End's P/E ratio

Lands End's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 56x. In other words, Lands End shares trade at around 56x 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.

Lands End's PEG ratio

Lands End's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.02. 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 Lands End's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Lands End shares

There are currently 1.1 million Lands End shares held short by investors – that's known as Lands End's "short interest". This figure is 11.8% down from 1.3 million last month.

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

Lands End's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lands End's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lands End shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lands End shares traded daily (recently around 167526.59732541). Lands End's SIR currently stands at 6.73. In other words for every 100,000 Lands End shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6730 shares are currently held short.

However Lands End's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lands End shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lands End shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lands End's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lands End shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0961% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lands End shares, roughly 96 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Lands End.
