Is DMC Global under- or over-valued?

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

DMC Global's P/E ratio

DMC Global's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, DMC Global shares trade at around 17x 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.

DMC Global's PEG ratio

DMC Global's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.8578. 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 DMC Global's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


DMC Global's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$27.7 million.

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

Shorting DMC Global shares

There are currently 2.7 million DMC Global shares held short by investors – that's known as DMC Global's "short interest". This figure is 2.8% down from 2.8 million last month.

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

DMC Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

DMC Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DMC Global shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DMC Global shares traded daily (recently around 117820.98116513). DMC Global's SIR currently stands at 22.83. In other words for every 100,000 DMC Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 22830 shares are currently held short.

However DMC Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DMC Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable DMC Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DMC Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.18% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DMC Global shares in existence, roughly 180 shares are currently held short) or 0.2897% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DMC Global shares, roughly 290 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against DMC Global.

DMC Global share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 31.65% of net profits

Recently DMC Global has paid out, on average, around 31.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), DMC Global shareholders could enjoy a 2.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In DMC Global's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

While DMC Global's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that DMC Global may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

DMC Global's most recent dividend payout was on 15 April 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have DMC Global's shares ever split?

DMC Global's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 13 October 2005. 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 DMC Global shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for DMC Global shares which in turn could have impacted DMC Global's share price.

DMC Global share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, DMC Global's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.0475 up to $49.21. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BOOM.US volatility(beta: 1.37)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 DMC Global's is 1.3706. This would suggest that DMC Global's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
