Is Domtar Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Domtar Corporation's P/E ratio

Domtar 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 100x. In other words, Domtar Corporation shares trade at around 100x recent earnings.

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

Domtar Corporation's PEG ratio

Domtar Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.86. 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 Domtar 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.

Domtar Corporation's EBITDA

Domtar Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $287 million.

Shorting Domtar Corporation shares

There are currently 4.5 million Domtar Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Domtar Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 146.5% up from 1.8 million last month.

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

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

Domtar Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Domtar Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Domtar Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 760412.35194585). Domtar Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.91. In other words for every 100,000 Domtar Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5910 shares are currently held short.

However Domtar Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Domtar Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Domtar Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Domtar Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Domtar Corporation shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1035% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Domtar Corporation shares, roughly 104 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 Domtar Corporation.

Have Domtar Corporation's shares ever split?

Domtar Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 June 2014. 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 Domtar Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Domtar Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Domtar Corporation's share price.

Domtar Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Domtar Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.66 up to $40.34. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UFS.US volatility(beta: 1.93)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 Domtar Corporation's is 1.9255. This would suggest that Domtar 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).
