Is BGSF under- or over-valued?

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

BGSF's P/E ratio

BGSF's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, BGSF shares trade at around 14x 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.

BGSF's PEG ratio

BGSF's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4314. 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 BGSF's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

BGSF's EBITDA

BGSF's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $15.5 million.

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

Shorting BGSF shares

There are currently 104,858 BGSF shares held short by investors – that's known as BGSF's "short interest". This figure is 44% down from 187,371 last month.

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

BGSF's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BGSF's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BGSF shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BGSF shares traded daily (recently around 32564.596273292). BGSF's SIR currently stands at 3.22. In other words for every 100,000 BGSF shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3220 shares are currently held short.

However BGSF's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BGSF shares, or, against the total number of tradable BGSF shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BGSF's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BGSF shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0104% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BGSF 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 BGSF.

BGSF share dividends

49%

Dividend payout ratio: 48.84% of net profits

Recently BGSF has paid out, on average, around 48.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.99% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BGSF shareholders could enjoy a 3.99% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BGSF's case, that would currently equate to about $0.42 per share.

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

BGSF's most recent dividend payout was on 22 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

BGSF share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BGSF's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.1683 up to $16.6348. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BGSF.US volatility(beta: 2.49)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while BGSF's is 2.4921. This would suggest that BGSF's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
