Is Enel Américas S-A under- or over-valued?

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

Shorting Enel Américas S-A shares

There are currently 2.9 million Enel Américas S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Enel Américas S-A's "short interest". This figure is 26.9% up from 2.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Enel Américas S-A shares can be evaluated.

Enel Américas S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Enel Américas S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Enel Américas S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Enel Américas S-A shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Enel Américas S-A's SIR currently stands at 2.2. In other words for every 100,000 Enel Américas S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2200 shares are currently held short.

However Enel Américas S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Enel Américas S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Enel Américas S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Enel Américas S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Enel Américas S-A shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0121% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Enel Américas S-A shares, roughly 12 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 Enel Américas S-A.

Enel Américas S-A share dividends

2%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.89% of net profits

Recently Enel Américas S-A has paid out, on average, around 1.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.92% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Enel Américas S-A shareholders could enjoy a 2.92% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Enel Américas S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $0.003 per share.

While Enel Américas S-A's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Enel Américas S-A is investing more in its future growth.

Enel Américas S-A's most recent dividend payout was on 8 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Enel Américas S-A's shares ever split?

Enel Américas S-A's shares were split on a 1854:1000 basis on 26 April 2016. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1854 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Enel Américas S-A shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 46.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Enel Américas S-A shares which in turn could have impacted Enel Américas S-A's share price.

Enel Américas S-A share price volatility
