Is Exxon Mobil Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Exxon Mobil Corporation's P/E ratio

Exxon Mobil 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 61x. In other words, Exxon Mobil Corporation shares trade at around 61x 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.

Exxon Mobil Corporation's PEG ratio

Exxon Mobil Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.3935. 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 Exxon Mobil 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.

Exxon Mobil Corporation's EBITDA

Exxon Mobil Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$18.7 billion.

There are currently 47.0 million Exxon Mobil Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Exxon Mobil Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 6.7% up from 44.1 million last month.

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

Exxon Mobil Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Exxon Mobil Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Exxon Mobil Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Exxon Mobil Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 30.1 million). Exxon Mobil Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.56. In other words for every 100,000 Exxon Mobil Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1560 shares are currently held short.

However Exxon Mobil Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Exxon Mobil Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Exxon Mobil Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Exxon Mobil Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Exxon Mobil Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0111% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Exxon Mobil Corporation shares, roughly 11 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 Exxon Mobil Corporation.
