Is Alico under- or over-valued?

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

Alico's P/E ratio

Alico's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Alico shares trade at around 10x 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.

Alico's EBITDA

Alico's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $26.5 million.

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

Shorting Alico shares

There are currently 76,603 Alico shares held short by investors – that's known as Alico's "short interest". This figure is 202.4% up from 25,330 last month.

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

Alico's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Alico's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Alico shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Alico shares traded daily (recently around 86070.786516854). Alico's SIR currently stands at 0.89. In other words for every 100,000 Alico shares traded daily on the market, roughly 890 shares are currently held short.

However Alico's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Alico shares, or, against the total number of tradable Alico shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Alico's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Alico shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0179% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Alico shares, roughly 18 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 Alico.

Alico share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 16.5% of net profits

Recently Alico has paid out, on average, around 16.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Alico shareholders could enjoy a 5.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Alico's case, that would currently equate to about $0.54 per share.

While Alico's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Alico is investing more in its future growth.

Alico's most recent dividend payout was on 8 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Alico's shares ever split?

Alico's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 22 February 1987. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Alico shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alico shares which in turn could have impacted Alico's share price.

Alico share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Alico's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.8537 up to $37.35. 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 Alico's is 0.4995. This would suggest that Alico's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
