Valuing XP stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of XP's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
XP's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 82x. In other words, XP shares trade at around 82x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.1 million XP shares held short by investors – that's known as XP's "short interest". This figure is 14.4% down from 2.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting XP shares can be evaluated.
XP's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of XP shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of XP shares traded daily (recently around 768167.27941176). XP's SIR currently stands at 2.72. In other words for every 100,000 XP shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2720 shares are currently held short.
However XP's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of XP shares, or, against the total number of tradable XP shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case XP's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 XP shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0206% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable XP shares, roughly 21 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 XP.
