Is Deluxe Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Deluxe Corporation's P/E ratio

Deluxe 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 20x. In other words, Deluxe Corporation shares trade at around 20x 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.

Deluxe Corporation's PEG ratio

Deluxe Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.84. 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 Deluxe 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.

Deluxe Corporation's EBITDA

Deluxe Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $302.3 million.

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

Shorting Deluxe Corporation shares

There are currently 2.7 million Deluxe Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Deluxe Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 17.3% up from 2.3 million last month.

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

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

Deluxe Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Deluxe Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Deluxe Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 305138.83826879). Deluxe Corporation's SIR currently stands at 8.78. In other words for every 100,000 Deluxe Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8780 shares are currently held short.

However Deluxe Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Deluxe Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Deluxe Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Deluxe Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Deluxe Corporation shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.064% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Deluxe Corporation shares, roughly 64 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Deluxe Corporation.

Deluxe Corporation share dividends

23%

Dividend payout ratio: 22.73% of net profits

Recently Deluxe Corporation has paid out, on average, around 22.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Deluxe Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Deluxe Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.

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

Deluxe Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 6 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Deluxe Corporation's shares ever split?

Deluxe Corporation's shares were split on a 10000:7995 basis on 1 January 2001. So if you had owned 7995 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Deluxe Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Deluxe Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Deluxe Corporation's share price.

Deluxe Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Deluxe Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.2828 up to $48.33. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DLX.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 Deluxe Corporation's is 1.6899. This would suggest that Deluxe Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
