Is Camping World under- or over-valued?

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

Camping World's P/E ratio

Camping World'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, Camping World 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.

Camping World's PEG ratio

Camping World's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7. 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 Camping World's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Camping World's EBITDA

Camping World's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$466.4 million.

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

Shorting Camping World shares

There are currently 7.3 million Camping World shares held short by investors – that's known as Camping World's "short interest". This figure is 6.5% up from 6.8 million last month.

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

Camping World's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Camping World's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Camping World shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Camping World shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Camping World's SIR currently stands at 4.91. In other words for every 100,000 Camping World shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4910 shares are currently held short.

However Camping World's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Camping World shares, or, against the total number of tradable Camping World shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Camping World's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Camping World shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.2299% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Camping World shares, roughly 230 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 Camping World.

Camping World share dividends

52%

Dividend payout ratio: 52.35% of net profits

Recently Camping World has paid out, on average, around 52.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Camping World shareholders could enjoy a 1.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Camping World's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.

Camping World'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.

Camping World's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Camping World share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Camping World's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.2411 up to $40.7987. 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 Camping World's is 3.5218. This would suggest that Camping World's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
