Is CTS Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

CTS Corporation's P/E ratio

CTS 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 26x. In other words, CTS Corporation shares trade at around 26x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

CTS Corporation's PEG ratio

CTS Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.05. 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 CTS 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.

CTS Corporation's EBITDA

CTS Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $80.8 million.

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

Shorting CTS Corporation shares

There are currently 247,361 CTS Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as CTS Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 66.9% down from 747,859 last month.

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

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

CTS Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CTS Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CTS Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 174197.88732394). CTS Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.42. In other words for every 100,000 CTS Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1420 shares are currently held short.

However CTS Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CTS Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable CTS Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CTS Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CTS Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0078% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CTS Corporation shares, roughly 8 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 CTS Corporation.

CTS Corporation share dividends

12%

Dividend payout ratio: 11.51% of net profits

Recently CTS Corporation has paid out, on average, around 11.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CTS Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CTS Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.16 per share.

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

CTS Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 22 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have CTS Corporation's shares ever split?

CTS Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 August 1999. 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 CTS Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CTS Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted CTS Corporation's share price.

CTS Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CTS Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.4455 up to $39.448. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
