Is Eagle Materials under- or over-valued?

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

Eagle Materials's P/E ratio

Eagle Materials'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, Eagle Materials 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.

Eagle Materials's PEG ratio

Eagle Materials's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.51. 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 Eagle Materials's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Eagle Materials's EBITDA

Eagle Materials's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $520.4 million.

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

Shorting Eagle Materials shares

There are currently 1.1 million Eagle Materials shares held short by investors – that's known as Eagle Materials's "short interest". This figure is 12.9% up from 948,071 last month.

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

Eagle Materials's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Eagle Materials's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Eagle Materials shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Eagle Materials shares traded daily (recently around 327382.26299694). Eagle Materials's SIR currently stands at 3.27. In other words for every 100,000 Eagle Materials shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3270 shares are currently held short.

However Eagle Materials's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Eagle Materials shares, or, against the total number of tradable Eagle Materials shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Eagle Materials's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Eagle Materials shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0259% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Eagle Materials shares, roughly 26 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 Eagle Materials.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Eagle Materials is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Eagle Materials's environmental score

Environmental score: 20.84/100

Eagle Materials's social score

Eagle Materials share dividends

6%

Dividend payout ratio: 6.44% of net profits

Recently Eagle Materials has paid out, on average, around 6.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Eagle Materials shareholders could enjoy a 0.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eagle Materials's case, that would currently equate to about $0.25 per share.

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

Eagle Materials's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Eagle Materials's shares ever split?

Eagle Materials's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 26 February 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Eagle Materials shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Eagle Materials shares which in turn could have impacted Eagle Materials's share price.

Eagle Materials share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Eagle Materials's shares have ranged in value from as little as $77.9593 up to $159.9017. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EXP.US volatility(beta: 1.23)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 Eagle Materials's is 1.2271. This would suggest that Eagle Materials's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
