Is Costamare under- or over-valued?

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

Costamare's P/E ratio

Costamare's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 99x. In other words, Costamare shares trade at around 99x 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.

Costamare's EBITDA

Costamare's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $288.8 million.

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

Shorting Costamare shares

There are currently 1.5 million Costamare shares held short by investors – that's known as Costamare's "short interest". This figure is 6.5% down from 1.6 million last month.

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

Costamare's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Costamare's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Costamare shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Costamare shares traded daily (recently around 693184.83412322). Costamare's SIR currently stands at 2.11. In other words for every 100,000 Costamare shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2110 shares are currently held short.

However Costamare's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Costamare shares, or, against the total number of tradable Costamare shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Costamare's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Costamare shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0273% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Costamare shares, roughly 27 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 Costamare.

Costamare share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 51.88% of net profits

Recently Costamare has paid out, on average, around 51.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Costamare shareholders could enjoy a 4.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Costamare's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

Costamare's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Costamare's most recent dividend payout was on 4 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Costamare share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Costamare's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.275 up to $12.5417. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CMRE.US volatility(beta: 1.69)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 Costamare's is 1.6882. This would suggest that Costamare's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
