Is Core-Mark Holding Company under- or over-valued?
Valuing Core-Mark Holding Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Core-Mark Holding Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Core-Mark Holding Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Core-Mark Holding Company shares
There are currently 1.6 million Core-Mark Holding Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Core-Mark Holding Company's "short interest". This figure is 9.5% up from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Core-Mark Holding Company shares can be evaluated.
Core-Mark Holding Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Core-Mark Holding Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Core-Mark Holding Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Core-Mark Holding Company shares traded daily (recently around 408635.18987342). Core-Mark Holding Company's SIR currently stands at 3.95. In other words for every 100,000 Core-Mark Holding Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3950 shares are currently held short.
However Core-Mark Holding Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Core-Mark Holding Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Core-Mark Holding Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Core-Mark Holding Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Core-Mark Holding Company shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0366% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Core-Mark Holding Company shares, roughly 37 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 Core-Mark Holding Company.

Core-Mark Holding Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 33.33% of net profits
Recently Core-Mark Holding Company has paid out, on average, around 33.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Core-Mark Holding Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Core-Mark Holding Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.
While Core-Mark Holding Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Core-Mark Holding Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Core-Mark Holding Company's most recent dividend payout was on 24 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Core-Mark Holding Company's shares ever split?
Core-Mark Holding Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 June 2016. 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 Core-Mark Holding Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Core-Mark Holding Company shares which in turn could have impacted Core-Mark Holding Company's share price.
Core-Mark Holding Company share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Core-Mark Holding Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.9713 up to $47.835. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
