Is XL Fleet under- or over-valued?

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

XL Fleet's P/E ratio

XL Fleet's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 85x. In other words, XL Fleet shares trade at around 85x 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.

However, XL Fleet's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the auto parts industry or those of similar companies.

Shorting XL Fleet shares

There are currently 19.0 million XL Fleet shares held short by investors – that's known as XL Fleet's "short interest". This figure is 4.2% down from 19.9 million last month.

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

XL Fleet's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

XL Fleet's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of XL Fleet shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of XL Fleet shares traded daily (recently around 5.6 million). XL Fleet's SIR currently stands at 3.41. In other words for every 100,000 XL Fleet shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3410 shares are currently held short.

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

However XL Fleet's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of XL Fleet shares, or, against the total number of tradable XL Fleet shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case XL Fleet's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 XL Fleet shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1877% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable XL Fleet shares, roughly 188 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 XL Fleet.

Have XL Fleet's shares ever split?

XL Fleet's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 July 1996. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your XL Fleet shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for XL Fleet shares which in turn could have impacted XL Fleet's share price.
