Is PagSeguro Digital under- or over-valued?

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

PagSeguro Digital's P/E ratio

PagSeguro Digital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 78x. In other words, PagSeguro Digital shares trade at around 78x 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 PagSeguro Digital shares

There are currently 16.2 million PagSeguro Digital shares held short by investors – that's known as PagSeguro Digital's "short interest". This figure is 13.3% down from 18.7 million last month.

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

PagSeguro Digital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PagSeguro Digital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PagSeguro Digital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PagSeguro Digital shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). PagSeguro Digital's SIR currently stands at 8.64. In other words for every 100,000 PagSeguro Digital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8640 shares are currently held short.

However PagSeguro Digital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PagSeguro Digital shares, or, against the total number of tradable PagSeguro Digital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PagSeguro Digital's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PagSeguro Digital shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.1677% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PagSeguro Digital shares, roughly 168 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 PagSeguro Digital.
