Is Brunswick Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Brunswick Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Brunswick Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Brunswick Corporation's P/E ratio
Brunswick 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 17x. In other words, Brunswick Corporation 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.
Brunswick Corporation's PEG ratio
Brunswick Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.97. 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 Brunswick 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.
Brunswick Corporation's EBITDA
Brunswick Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $835.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Brunswick Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Brunswick Corporation shares
There are currently 2.4 million Brunswick Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Brunswick Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 45.6% up from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Brunswick Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Brunswick Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Brunswick Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Brunswick Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Brunswick Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 767363.49206349). Brunswick Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.15. In other words for every 100,000 Brunswick Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3150 shares are currently held short.
However Brunswick Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Brunswick Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Brunswick Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Brunswick Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Brunswick Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0331% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Brunswick Corporation shares, roughly 33 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 Brunswick Corporation.

Brunswick Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 17.56% of net profits
Recently Brunswick Corporation has paid out, on average, around 17.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Brunswick Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Brunswick Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.02 per share.
While Brunswick Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Brunswick Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Brunswick Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Brunswick Corporation share price volatility

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Brunswick Corporation's is 1.8727. This would suggest that Brunswick Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
