Is Virtusa Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Virtusa Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, Virtusa Corporation shares trade at around 30x 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.

Virtusa Corporation's PEG ratio

Virtusa Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7641. 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 Virtusa Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Virtusa Corporation shares

There are currently 2.6 million Virtusa Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Virtusa Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 54.1% up from 1.7 million last month.

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

Virtusa Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Virtusa Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Virtusa Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Virtusa Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 378338.90489914). Virtusa Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.94. In other words for every 100,000 Virtusa Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6940 shares are currently held short.

However Virtusa Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Virtusa Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Virtusa Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Virtusa Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Virtusa Corporation shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1367% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Virtusa Corporation shares, roughly 137 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 Virtusa Corporation.
