Is XPEL under- or over-valued?

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

XPEL's P/E ratio

XPEL's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 136x. In other words, XPEL shares trade at around 136x 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.

XPEL's EBITDA

XPEL's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$25.6 million.

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

Shorting XPEL shares

There are currently 657,159 XPEL shares held short by investors – that's known as XPEL's "short interest". This figure is 12.4% up from 584,784 last month.

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

XPEL's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

XPEL's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of XPEL shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of XPEL shares traded daily (recently around 373385.79545455). XPEL's SIR currently stands at 1.76. In other words for every 100,000 XPEL shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1760 shares are currently held short.

However XPEL's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of XPEL shares, or, against the total number of tradable XPEL shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case XPEL's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 XPEL shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0398% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable XPEL shares, roughly 40 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 XPEL.

XPEL share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, XPEL's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.96 up to $65.74. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

XPEL.US volatility(beta: 1.54)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while XPEL's is 1.5422. This would suggest that XPEL's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
