Is Caesarstone under- or over-valued?

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

Caesarstone's P/E ratio

Caesarstone's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 65x. In other words, Caesarstone shares trade at around 65x 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.

Caesarstone's PEG ratio

Caesarstone's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.03. 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 Caesarstone's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Caesarstone's EBITDA

Caesarstone's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$58.3 million.

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

Shorting Caesarstone shares

There are currently 198,614 Caesarstone shares held short by investors – that's known as Caesarstone's "short interest". This figure is 27.7% up from 155,532 last month.

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

Caesarstone's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Caesarstone's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Caesarstone shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Caesarstone shares traded daily (recently around 122601.2345679). Caesarstone's SIR currently stands at 1.62. In other words for every 100,000 Caesarstone shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1620 shares are currently held short.

However Caesarstone's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Caesarstone shares, or, against the total number of tradable Caesarstone shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Caesarstone's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Caesarstone shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0095% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Caesarstone 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 Caesarstone.

Caesarstone share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 1538.46% of net profits

Recently Caesarstone has paid out, on average, around 1538.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Caesarstone shareholders could enjoy a 1.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Caesarstone's case, that would currently equate to about $0.14 per share.

Caesarstone'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.

Caesarstone's most recent dividend payout was on 8 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Caesarstone share price volatility

CSTE.US volatility(beta: 0.83)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
