Is B-and-G Foods under- or over-valued?

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

B-and-G Foods's P/E ratio

B-and-G Foods's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, B-and-G Foods shares trade at around 17x 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.

B-and-G Foods's PEG ratio

B-and-G Foods's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.93. 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 B-and-G Foods's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting B-and-G Foods shares

There are currently 15.4 million B-and-G Foods shares held short by investors – that's known as B-and-G Foods's "short interest". This figure is 23.2% up from 12.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting B-and-G Foods shares can be evaluated.

B-and-G Foods's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

B-and-G Foods's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of B-and-G Foods shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of B-and-G Foods shares traded daily (recently around 661871.53912296). B-and-G Foods's SIR currently stands at 23.26. In other words for every 100,000 B-and-G Foods shares traded daily on the market, roughly 23260 shares are currently held short.

However B-and-G Foods's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of B-and-G Foods shares, or, against the total number of tradable B-and-G Foods shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case B-and-G Foods's short interest could be expressed as 0.24% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 B-and-G Foods shares in existence, roughly 240 shares are currently held short) or 0.3312% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable B-and-G Foods shares, roughly 331 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against B-and-G Foods.

B-and-G Foods share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 94.06% of net profits

Recently B-and-G Foods has paid out, on average, around 94.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), B-and-G Foods shareholders could enjoy a 6.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In B-and-G Foods's case, that would currently equate to about $1.9 per share.

B-and-G Foods's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

B-and-G Foods's most recent dividend payout was on 31 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

B-and-G Foods share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, B-and-G Foods's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.7734 up to $45.7454. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while B-and-G Foods's is 0.4471. This would suggest that B-and-G Foods's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
