Is Express under- or over-valued?

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

Express's PEG ratio

Express's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.14. 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 Express's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Express's EBITDA

Express's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$72.7 million (£0.0 million).

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

Gross profit TTM US$363.3 million

Express share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Express's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$0.86 up to US$13.97. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EXPR.US volatility(beta: 1.73)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Express's is 1.7252. This would suggest that Express's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
