Is PFSweb under- or over-valued?

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

PFSweb's P/E ratio

PFSweb's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 185x. In other words, PFSweb shares trade at around 185x 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.

PFSweb's PEG ratio

PFSweb's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4. 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 PFSweb's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


PFSweb's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$10.3 million.

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

Shorting PFSweb shares

There are currently 240,186 PFSweb shares held short by investors – that's known as PFSweb's "short interest". This figure is 16.1% down from 286,128 last month.

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

PFSweb's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PFSweb's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PFSweb shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PFSweb shares traded daily (recently around 64220.855614973). PFSweb's SIR currently stands at 3.74. In other words for every 100,000 PFSweb shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3740 shares are currently held short.

However PFSweb's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PFSweb shares, or, against the total number of tradable PFSweb shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PFSweb's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PFSweb shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0179% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PFSweb shares, roughly 18 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 PFSweb.

We're not expecting PFSweb to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have PFSweb's shares ever split?

PFSweb's shares were split on a 10:47 basis on 2 June 2008. So if you had owned 47 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your PFSweb shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 370% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for PFSweb shares which in turn could have impacted PFSweb's share price.

PFSweb share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PFSweb's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.5 up to $9.89. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PFSW.US volatility(beta: 1.86)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while PFSweb's is 1.8591. This would suggest that PFSweb's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
