Is XP under- or over-valued?

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 P/E ratio

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 48x. In other words, XP stocks trade at around 48x 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 stocks or simply that they're over-valued.


XP's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$3.3 billion.

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

How to short and sell XP stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "XP.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 4.9 million XP stocks held short by investors – that's known as XP's "short interest". This figure is 6.2% up from 4.6 million last month.

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

XP's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

XP's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of XP stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of XP stocks traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). XP's SIR currently stands at 3.63. In other words for every 100,000 XP stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3630 stocks are currently held short.

However XP's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of XP stocks, or, against the total number of tradable XP stocks (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 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 XP stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0321% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable XP stocks, roughly 32 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against XP.
