Is Berry Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Berry Corporation's P/E ratio

Berry Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Berry Corporation shares trade at around 7x 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.

Berry Corporation's EBITDA

Berry Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$256.2 million.

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

Shorting Berry Corporation shares

There are currently 554,101 Berry Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Berry Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 13.3% down from 638,936 last month.

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

Berry Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Berry Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Berry Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Berry Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 282704.59183673). Berry Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.96. In other words for every 100,000 Berry Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1960 shares are currently held short.

However Berry Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Berry Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Berry Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Berry Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Berry Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0102% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Berry Corporation shares, roughly 10 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 Berry Corporation.

Berry Corporation share dividends

21%

Dividend payout ratio: 21.05% of net profits

Recently Berry Corporation has paid out, on average, around 21.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 21.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Berry Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 21.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Berry Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.

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

Berry Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 April 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Berry Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Berry Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.82 up to $6.3485. 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 Berry Corporation's is 760.0476. This would suggest that Berry Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
