Is Crocs under- or over-valued?

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

Crocs's P/E ratio

Crocs's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 29x. In other words, Crocs shares trade at around 29x 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.

Crocs's EBITDA

Crocs's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$164.2 million.

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

Shorting Crocs shares

There are currently 2.5 million Crocs shares held short by investors – that's known as Crocs's "short interest". This figure is 4.8% up from 2.4 million last month.

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

Crocs's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Crocs's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Crocs shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Crocs shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Crocs's SIR currently stands at 2.11. In other words for every 100,000 Crocs shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2110 shares are currently held short.

However Crocs's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Crocs shares, or, against the total number of tradable Crocs shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Crocs's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Crocs shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0507% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Crocs shares, roughly 51 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 Crocs.

Crocs share dividends

We're not expecting Crocs to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Crocs's shares ever split?

Crocs's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 June 2007. 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 Crocs shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Crocs shares which in turn could have impacted Crocs's share price.

Crocs share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Crocs's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.4 up to $54.48. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CROX.US volatility(beta: 1.74)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Crocs's is 1.7369. This would suggest that Crocs's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
