Is Colliers International Group under- or over-valued?

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

Colliers International Group's P/E ratio

Colliers International Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 57x. In other words, Colliers International Group shares trade at around 57x 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.

Colliers International Group's PEG ratio

Colliers International Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.14. 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 Colliers International Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Colliers International Group's EBITDA

Colliers International Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$294.4 million.

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

Shorting Colliers International Group shares

There are currently 337,801 Colliers International Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Colliers International Group's "short interest". This figure is 48.4% down from 655,249 last month.

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

Colliers International Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Colliers International Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Colliers International Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Colliers International Group shares traded daily (recently around 56300.166666667). Colliers International Group's SIR currently stands at 6. In other words for every 100,000 Colliers International Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6000 shares are currently held short.

However Colliers International Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Colliers International Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Colliers International Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Colliers International Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Colliers International Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Colliers International Group shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Colliers International Group.

Colliers International Group share dividends

3%

Dividend payout ratio: 3.46% of net profits

Recently Colliers International Group has paid out, on average, around 3.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Colliers International Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Colliers International Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.

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

Colliers International Group's most recent dividend payout was on 14 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Colliers International Group's shares ever split?

Colliers International Group's shares were split on a 1709:1000 basis on 2 June 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1709 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Colliers International Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 41.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Colliers International Group shares which in turn could have impacted Colliers International Group's share price.

Colliers International Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Colliers International Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $33.8992 up to $93.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CIGI.US volatility(beta: 1.59)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Colliers International Group's is 1.5887. This would suggest that Colliers International Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
