Is Bio-Techne Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Bio-Techne Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Bio-Techne Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Bio-Techne Corporation's P/E ratio
Bio-Techne 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 104x. In other words, Bio-Techne Corporation shares trade at around 104x 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.
Bio-Techne Corporation's PEG ratio
Bio-Techne Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.3884. 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 Bio-Techne Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Bio-Techne Corporation's EBITDA
Bio-Techne Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $257.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Bio-Techne Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Bio-Techne Corporation shares
There are currently 390,218 Bio-Techne Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Bio-Techne Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 10.8% down from 437,235 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bio-Techne Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Bio-Techne Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Bio-Techne Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bio-Techne Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bio-Techne Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 215590.05524862). Bio-Techne Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.81. In other words for every 100,000 Bio-Techne Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1810 shares are currently held short.
However Bio-Techne Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bio-Techne Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bio-Techne Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bio-Techne Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bio-Techne Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0101% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bio-Techne 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 Bio-Techne Corporation.

Bio-Techne Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 21.92% of net profits
Recently Bio-Techne Corporation has paid out, on average, around 21.92% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bio-Techne Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bio-Techne Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.28 per share.
While Bio-Techne Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Bio-Techne Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Bio-Techne Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 27 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Bio-Techne Corporation's shares ever split?
Bio-Techne Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 December 2000. 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 Bio-Techne Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bio-Techne Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Bio-Techne Corporation's share price.
Bio-Techne Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Bio-Techne Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $228.0525 up to $487.15. 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 Bio-Techne Corporation's is 1.1246. This would suggest that Bio-Techne Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
