Is CoreLogic under- or over-valued?

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

CoreLogic's P/E ratio

CoreLogic's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, CoreLogic shares trade at around 34x 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.

CoreLogic's PEG ratio

CoreLogic's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4751. 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 CoreLogic's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

CoreLogic's EBITDA

CoreLogic's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$443.4 million.

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

Shorting CoreLogic shares

There are currently 2.2 million CoreLogic shares held short by investors – that's known as CoreLogic's "short interest". This figure is 108.5% up from 1.1 million last month.

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

CoreLogic's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CoreLogic's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CoreLogic shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CoreLogic shares traded daily (recently around 685686.8902439). CoreLogic's SIR currently stands at 3.28. In other words for every 100,000 CoreLogic shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3280 shares are currently held short.

However CoreLogic's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CoreLogic shares, or, against the total number of tradable CoreLogic shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CoreLogic's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CoreLogic shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0286% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CoreLogic shares, roughly 29 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 CoreLogic.

CoreLogic share dividends

23%

Dividend payout ratio: 22.85% of net profits

Recently CoreLogic has paid out, on average, around 22.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CoreLogic shareholders could enjoy a 1.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CoreLogic's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.

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

CoreLogic's most recent dividend payout was on 15 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have CoreLogic's shares ever split?

CoreLogic's shares were split on a 10000:5709 basis on 2 June 2010. So if you had owned 5709 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CoreLogic shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 42.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CoreLogic shares which in turn could have impacted CoreLogic's share price.

CoreLogic share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CoreLogic's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.69 up to $69.87. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CLGX.US volatility(beta: 1.25)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 CoreLogic's is 1.2504. This would suggest that CoreLogic's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
