Is StoneCo under- or over-valued?

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

StoneCo's P/E ratio

StoneCo's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 108x. In other words, StoneCo shares trade at around 108x 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.

StoneCo's EBITDA

StoneCo's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.5 billion.

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

Shorting StoneCo shares

There are currently 7.3 million StoneCo shares held short by investors – that's known as StoneCo's "short interest". This figure is 10.9% down from 8.2 million last month.

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

StoneCo's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

StoneCo's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of StoneCo shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of StoneCo shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). StoneCo's SIR currently stands at 3. In other words for every 100,000 StoneCo shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3000 shares are currently held short.

However StoneCo's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of StoneCo shares, or, against the total number of tradable StoneCo shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case StoneCo's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 StoneCo shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0315% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable StoneCo shares, roughly 32 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 StoneCo.

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while StoneCo's is 2.2943. This would suggest that StoneCo's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
