Is TaskUs under- or over-valued?

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

TaskUs's P/E ratio

TaskUs's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, TaskUs shares trade at around 6x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

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

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

Shorting TaskUs shares

There are currently 468,642 TaskUs shares held short by investors – that's known as TaskUs's "short interest". This figure is 257.6% up from 131,036 last month.

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

TaskUs's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TaskUs's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TaskUs shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TaskUs shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). TaskUs's SIR currently stands at 0.36. In other words for every 100,000 TaskUs shares traded daily on the market, roughly 360 shares are currently held short.

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

However TaskUs's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TaskUs shares, or, against the total number of tradable TaskUs shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TaskUs's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TaskUs shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.3765% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TaskUs shares, roughly 377 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 TaskUs.
