Is Paymentus under- or over-valued?

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

Paymentus's P/E ratio

Paymentus's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 322x. In other words, Paymentus shares trade at around 322x 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.

However, Paymentus's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the other industry or those of similar companies.

Paymentus's PEG ratio

Paymentus's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 10.96. 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 Paymentus's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, it's sensible to consider Paymentus's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Paymentus's EBITDA

Paymentus's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $20.9 million.

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

To put Paymentus's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

Shorting Paymentus shares

There are currently 933,227 Paymentus shares held short by investors – that's known as Paymentus's "short interest". This figure is 190.3% up from 321,444 last month.

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

Paymentus's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Paymentus's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Paymentus shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Paymentus shares traded daily (recently around 307995.70957096). Paymentus's SIR currently stands at 3.03. In other words for every 100,000 Paymentus shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3030 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Paymentus's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Paymentus's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Paymentus shares, or, against the total number of tradable Paymentus shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Paymentus's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Paymentus shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0822% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Paymentus shares, roughly 82 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 Paymentus.
