Is Clarus Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Clarus Corporation's P/E ratio

Clarus 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 43x. In other words, Clarus Corporation shares trade at around 43x 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.

Clarus Corporation's PEG ratio

Clarus Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.05. 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 Clarus 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.

Clarus Corporation's EBITDA

Clarus Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$12.3 million.

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

Clarus Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Clarus Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Clarus Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Clarus Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 234683.22580645). Clarus Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.55. In other words for every 100,000 Clarus Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1550 shares are currently held short.

However Clarus Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Clarus Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Clarus Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Clarus Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Clarus Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0124% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Clarus Corporation shares, roughly 12 shares are currently held short).

Clarus Corporation share dividends

18%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.58% of net profits

Recently Clarus Corporation has paid out, on average, around 17.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Clarus Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Clarus Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.

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

Clarus Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 20 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Clarus Corporation's shares ever split?

Clarus Corporation's shares were split on a 1002:1000 basis on 7 August 2020. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1002 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Clarus Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Clarus Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Clarus Corporation's share price.
