Is Edgewell Personal Care Company under- or over-valued?

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

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Edgewell Personal Care 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.

Shorting Edgewell Personal Care Company shares

There are currently 4.7 million Edgewell Personal Care Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Edgewell Personal Care Company's "short interest". This figure is 22.3% up from 3.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Edgewell Personal Care Company shares can be evaluated.

Edgewell Personal Care Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Edgewell Personal Care Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Edgewell Personal Care Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Edgewell Personal Care Company shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Edgewell Personal Care Company's SIR currently stands at 3.77. In other words for every 100,000 Edgewell Personal Care Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3770 shares are currently held short.

However Edgewell Personal Care Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Edgewell Personal Care Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Edgewell Personal Care Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Edgewell Personal Care Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Edgewell Personal Care Company shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1283% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Edgewell Personal Care Company shares, roughly 128 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 Edgewell Personal Care Company.

Edgewell Personal Care Company share dividends

12%

Dividend payout ratio: 11.54% of net profits

Recently Edgewell Personal Care Company has paid out, on average, around 11.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Edgewell Personal Care Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Edgewell Personal Care Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.15 per share.

While Edgewell Personal Care Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Edgewell Personal Care Company is investing more in its future growth.

Edgewell Personal Care Company's most recent dividend payout was on 5 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Edgewell Personal Care Company's shares ever split?

Edgewell Personal Care Company's shares were split on a 1349:1000 basis on 30 June 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1349 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Edgewell Personal Care Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Edgewell Personal Care Company shares which in turn could have impacted Edgewell Personal Care Company's share price.

Edgewell Personal Care Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Edgewell Personal Care Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.8208 up to $41.72. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Edgewell Personal Care Company's is 1.0314. This would suggest that Edgewell Personal Care Company'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).
