Is Culp under- or over-valued?

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

Culp's P/E ratio

Culp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Culp shares trade at around 19x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Culp's PEG ratio

Culp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0004. 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 Culp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Culp's EBITDA

Culp's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $20.8 million.

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

Shorting Culp shares

There are currently 13,132 Culp shares held short by investors – that's known as Culp's "short interest". This figure is 20.2% down from 16,450 last month.

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

Culp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Culp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Culp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Culp shares traded daily (recently around 20203.076923077). Culp's SIR currently stands at 0.65. In other words for every 100,000 Culp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 650 shares are currently held short.

However Culp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Culp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Culp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Culp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Culp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0013% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Culp shares, roughly 1 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 Culp.

Culp share dividends

57%

Dividend payout ratio: 57.14% of net profits

Recently Culp has paid out, on average, around 57.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Culp shareholders could enjoy a 3.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Culp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.435 per share.

Culp'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.

Culp's most recent dividend payout was on 17 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Culp's shares ever split?

Culp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 11 January 1994. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Culp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Culp shares which in turn could have impacted Culp's share price.

Culp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Culp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.3648 up to $17.6235. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CULP.US volatility(beta: 1.18)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 Culp's is 1.1763. This would suggest that Culp's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
