Is Eastman Chemical Company under- or over-valued?

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

Eastman Chemical Company's P/E ratio

Eastman Chemical Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 44x. In other words, Eastman Chemical Company shares trade at around 44x 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.

Eastman Chemical Company's PEG ratio

Eastman Chemical Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1426. 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 Eastman Chemical Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Eastman Chemical Company's EBITDA

Eastman Chemical Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.8 billion.

Shorting Eastman Chemical Company shares

There are currently 1.7 million Eastman Chemical Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Eastman Chemical Company's "short interest". This figure is 46.2% up from 1.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Eastman Chemical Company shares can be evaluated.

Eastman Chemical Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Eastman Chemical Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Eastman Chemical Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Eastman Chemical Company shares traded daily (recently around 576486.71096346). Eastman Chemical Company's SIR currently stands at 3.01. In other words for every 100,000 Eastman Chemical Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3010 shares are currently held short.

However Eastman Chemical Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Eastman Chemical Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Eastman Chemical Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Eastman Chemical Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Eastman Chemical Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0129% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Eastman Chemical Company shares, roughly 13 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 Eastman Chemical Company.

Eastman Chemical Company share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 35.16% of net profits

Recently Eastman Chemical Company has paid out, on average, around 35.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Eastman Chemical Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eastman Chemical Company's case, that would currently equate to about $2.73 per share.

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

Eastman Chemical Company's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Eastman Chemical Company's shares ever split?

Eastman Chemical Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 October 2011. 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 Eastman Chemical Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Eastman Chemical Company shares which in turn could have impacted Eastman Chemical Company's share price.

Eastman Chemical Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Eastman Chemical Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $73.0345 up to $128.9392. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EMN.US volatility(beta: 1.52)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 Eastman Chemical Company's is 1.524. This would suggest that Eastman Chemical Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
