Is Acushnet under- or over-valued?

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

Acushnet's P/E ratio

Acushnet's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 33x. In other words, Acushnet shares trade at around 33x 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.

Acushnet's PEG ratio

Acushnet's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.66. 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 Acushnet's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Acushnet's EBITDA

Acushnet's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$196.4 million.

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

Shorting Acushnet shares

There are currently 2.1 million Acushnet shares held short by investors – that's known as Acushnet's "short interest". This figure is 10.6% down from 2.3 million last month.

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

Acushnet's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Acushnet's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Acushnet shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Acushnet shares traded daily (recently around 208298.41269841). Acushnet's SIR currently stands at 10.08. In other words for every 100,000 Acushnet shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10080 shares are currently held short.

However Acushnet's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Acushnet shares, or, against the total number of tradable Acushnet shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Acushnet's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Acushnet shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0619% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Acushnet shares, roughly 62 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Acushnet.

Acushnet share dividends

40%

Dividend payout ratio: 39.83% of net profits

Recently Acushnet has paid out, on average, around 39.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Acushnet shareholders could enjoy a 1.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Acushnet's case, that would currently equate to about $0.62 per share.

While Acushnet's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Acushnet may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Acushnet's most recent dividend payout was on 18 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Acushnet share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Acushnet's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.3895 up to $42.57. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GOLF.US volatility(beta: 0.83)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 Acushnet's is 0.8325. This would suggest that Acushnet's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
