Is CONMED Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

CONMED Corporation's P/E ratio

CONMED 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 11420x. In other words, CONMED Corporation shares trade at around 11420x 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.

CONMED Corporation's PEG ratio

CONMED Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.29. 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 CONMED 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.

CONMED Corporation's EBITDA

CONMED Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$143.5 million.

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

Shorting CONMED Corporation shares

There are currently 846,967 CONMED Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as CONMED Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 17.2% down from 1.0 million last month.

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

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

CONMED Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CONMED Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CONMED Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 174993.18181818). CONMED Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.84. In other words for every 100,000 CONMED Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4840 shares are currently held short.

However CONMED Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CONMED Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable CONMED Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CONMED Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CONMED Corporation shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0767% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CONMED Corporation shares, roughly 77 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 CONMED Corporation.

CONMED Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 36.04% of net profits

Recently CONMED Corporation has paid out, on average, around 36.04% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CONMED Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CONMED Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.

While CONMED Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that CONMED Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

CONMED Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 5 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have CONMED Corporation's shares ever split?

CONMED Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 10 September 2001. 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 CONMED Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CONMED Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted CONMED Corporation's share price.

CONMED Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CONMED Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.4668 up to $114.3325. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CNMD.US volatility(beta: 1.4)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while CONMED Corporation's is 1.4019. This would suggest that CONMED Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
