Is WNS under- or over-valued?

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

WNS's P/E ratio

WNS's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, WNS shares trade at around 38x 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.

WNS's PEG ratio

WNS's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.098. 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 WNS's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

WNS's EBITDA

WNS's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $168.3 million.

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

Shorting WNS shares

There are currently 256,228 WNS shares held short by investors – that's known as WNS's "short interest". This figure is 16.5% up from 219,852 last month.

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

WNS's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

WNS's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of WNS shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WNS shares traded daily (recently around 146416). WNS's SIR currently stands at 1.75. In other words for every 100,000 WNS shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1750 shares are currently held short.

However WNS's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WNS shares, or, against the total number of tradable WNS shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WNS's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WNS shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0062% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WNS shares, roughly 6 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 WNS.

WNS share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, WNS's shares have ranged in value from as little as $57.06 up to $84.55. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WNS.US volatility(beta: 1.39)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while WNS's is 1.3899. This would suggest that WNS's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
