Is Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional under- or over-valued?

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

Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's P/E ratio

Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional shares trade at around 9x 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.

Shorting Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional shares

There are currently 2.6 million Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional shares held short by investors – that's known as Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's "short interest". This figure is 61.5% down from 6.7 million last month.

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

Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional shares traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's SIR currently stands at 1.05. In other words for every 100,000 Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1050 shares are currently held short.

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

Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 0.8% of net profits

Recently Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional has paid out, on average, around 0.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional shareholders could enjoy a 1.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's case, that would currently equate to about $0.07 per share.

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

Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's most recent dividend payout was on 7 October 2019. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 May 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's shares ever split?

Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 April 2010. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional shares which in turn could have impacted Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's share price.

Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.0189 up to $6.155. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
