Is Caleres under- or over-valued?

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

Caleres's P/E ratio

Caleres's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Caleres shares trade at around 21x 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.

Caleres's PEG ratio

Caleres's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.74. 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 Caleres's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Caleres's EBITDA

Caleres's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $99.9 million.

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

Shorting Caleres shares

There are currently 1.9 million Caleres shares held short by investors – that's known as Caleres's "short interest". This figure is 1.5% up from 1.9 million last month.

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

Caleres's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Caleres's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Caleres shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Caleres shares traded daily (recently around 707631.59851301). Caleres's SIR currently stands at 2.69. In other words for every 100,000 Caleres shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2690 shares are currently held short.

However Caleres's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Caleres shares, or, against the total number of tradable Caleres shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Caleres's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Caleres shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0521% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Caleres shares, roughly 52 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 Caleres.

Caleres share dividends

18%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.61% of net profits

Recently Caleres has paid out, on average, around 17.61% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Caleres shareholders could enjoy a 1.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Caleres's case, that would currently equate to about $0.28 per share.

While Caleres's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Caleres is investing more in its future growth.

Caleres's most recent dividend payout was on 29 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Caleres's shares ever split?

Caleres's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 2 April 2007. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Caleres shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Caleres shares which in turn could have impacted Caleres's share price.

Caleres share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Caleres's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.8766 up to $29.36. 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 Caleres's is 2.6942. This would suggest that Caleres's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
