Is CURO Group under- or over-valued?

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

CURO Group's P/E ratio

CURO Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, CURO Group shares trade at around 11x 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.

CURO Group's EBITDA

CURO Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $168.8 million.

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

Shorting CURO Group shares

There are currently 404,845 CURO Group shares held short by investors – that's known as CURO Group's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% up from 397,200 last month.

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

CURO Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CURO Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CURO Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CURO Group shares traded daily (recently around 184020.45454545). CURO Group's SIR currently stands at 2.2. In other words for every 100,000 CURO Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2200 shares are currently held short.

However CURO Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CURO Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable CURO Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CURO Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CURO Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0231% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CURO Group shares, roughly 23 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 CURO Group.

CURO Group share dividends

16%

Dividend payout ratio: 16.27% of net profits

Recently CURO Group has paid out, on average, around 16.27% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.7% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CURO Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.7% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CURO Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.22 per share.

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

CURO Group's most recent dividend payout was on 26 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

CURO Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CURO Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.4093 up to $18.32. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while CURO Group's is 2.9984. This would suggest that CURO Group's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
