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 16x. In other words, Xp shares trade at around 16x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Xp's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.6 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Xp's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$12.7 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||29.68%|
|Gross profit TTM||$8.5 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||2.6%|
|Return on equity TTM||25.58%|
|Market capitalisation||$10.6 billion|

Xp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Xp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.97 up to $46.98. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Xp's is 1.6982. This would suggest that Xp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
