Is Linx S-A under- or over-valued?

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

Linx S-A's P/E ratio

Linx S-A's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1491x. In other words, Linx S-A shares trade at around 1491x 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.

Shorting Linx S-A shares

There are currently 24,767 Linx S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Linx S-A's "short interest". This figure is 11.3% down from 27,916 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Linx S-A shares can be evaluated.

Linx S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Linx S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Linx S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Linx S-A shares traded daily (recently around 26920.652173913). Linx S-A's SIR currently stands at 0.92. In other words for every 100,000 Linx S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 920 shares are currently held short.

However Linx S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Linx S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Linx S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Linx S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Linx S-A shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Linx S-A shares, roughly 0 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 Linx S-A.
