Is AptarGroup under- or over-valued?

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

AptarGroup's P/E ratio

AptarGroup's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 43x. In other words, AptarGroup shares trade at around 43x 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.

AptarGroup's PEG ratio

AptarGroup's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.5751. 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 AptarGroup's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

AptarGroup's EBITDA

AptarGroup's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$568.6 million.

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

Shorting AptarGroup shares

There are currently 353,871 AptarGroup shares held short by investors – that's known as AptarGroup's "short interest". This figure is 12.3% down from 403,614 last month.

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

AptarGroup's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AptarGroup's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AptarGroup shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AptarGroup shares traded daily (recently around 172620). AptarGroup's SIR currently stands at 2.05. In other words for every 100,000 AptarGroup shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2050 shares are currently held short.

However AptarGroup's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AptarGroup shares, or, against the total number of tradable AptarGroup shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AptarGroup's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AptarGroup shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0061% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AptarGroup shares, roughly 6 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 AptarGroup.

AptarGroup share dividends

41%

Dividend payout ratio: 40.79% of net profits

Recently AptarGroup has paid out, on average, around 40.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AptarGroup shareholders could enjoy a 1.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AptarGroup's case, that would currently equate to about $1.44 per share.

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

AptarGroup's most recent dividend payout was on 18 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AptarGroup's shares ever split?

AptarGroup's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 10 May 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AptarGroup shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AptarGroup shares which in turn could have impacted AptarGroup's share price.

AptarGroup share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AptarGroup's shares have ranged in value from as little as $79.1025 up to $136.37. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
