Is Dollar Tree under- or over-valued?

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

Dollar Tree's P/E ratio

Dollar Tree's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Dollar Tree shares trade at around 16x 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.

Dollar Tree's PEG ratio

Dollar Tree's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6541. 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 Dollar Tree's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dollar Tree's EBITDA

Dollar Tree's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3 billion.

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

Shorting Dollar Tree shares

There are currently 4.4 million Dollar Tree shares held short by investors – that's known as Dollar Tree's "short interest". This figure is 21% down from 5.6 million last month.

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

Dollar Tree's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dollar Tree's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dollar Tree shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dollar Tree shares traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). Dollar Tree's SIR currently stands at 1.68. In other words for every 100,000 Dollar Tree shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1680 shares are currently held short.

However Dollar Tree's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dollar Tree shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dollar Tree shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dollar Tree's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dollar Tree shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0194% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dollar Tree shares, roughly 19 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 Dollar Tree.
