Is Bel Fuse under- or over-valued?

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

Bel Fuse's P/E ratio

Bel Fuse'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, Bel Fuse 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.

Bel Fuse's EBITDA

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

Shorting Bel Fuse shares

There are currently 9,397 Bel Fuse shares held short by investors – that's known as Bel Fuse's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% down from 9,701 last month.

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

Bel Fuse's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bel Fuse's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bel Fuse shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bel Fuse shares traded daily (recently around 2361.0552763819). Bel Fuse's SIR currently stands at 3.98. In other words for every 100,000 Bel Fuse shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3980 shares are currently held short.

However Bel Fuse's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bel Fuse shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bel Fuse shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bel Fuse's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bel Fuse shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.007% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bel Fuse shares, roughly 7 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 Bel Fuse.

Bel Fuse share dividends

25%

Dividend payout ratio: 24.74% of net profits

Recently Bel Fuse has paid out, on average, around 24.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bel Fuse shareholders could enjoy a 1.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bel Fuse's case, that would currently equate to about $0.28 per share.

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

Bel Fuse's most recent dividend payout was on 29 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Bel Fuse's shares ever split?

Bel Fuse's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 December 1999. 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 Bel Fuse shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bel Fuse shares which in turn could have impacted Bel Fuse's share price.

Bel Fuse share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bel Fuse's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.9743 up to $21.5183. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BELFA.US volatility(beta: 2)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Bel Fuse's is 1.995. This would suggest that Bel Fuse's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
