Is Energizer under- or over-valued?

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

Energizer's P/E ratio

Energizer's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Energizer shares trade at around 24x 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.

Energizer's PEG ratio

Energizer's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5. 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 Energizer's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Energizer's EBITDA

Energizer's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$539.2 million.

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

Shorting Energizer shares

There are currently 3.5 million Energizer shares held short by investors – that's known as Energizer's "short interest". This figure is 20.9% down from 4.4 million last month.

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

Energizer's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Energizer's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Energizer shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Energizer shares traded daily (recently around 656600.37664783). Energizer's SIR currently stands at 5.31. In other words for every 100,000 Energizer shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5310 shares are currently held short.

However Energizer's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Energizer shares, or, against the total number of tradable Energizer shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Energizer's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Energizer shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0519% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Energizer shares, roughly 52 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 Energizer.

Energizer share dividends

45%

Dividend payout ratio: 45.28% of net profits

Recently Energizer has paid out, on average, around 45.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Energizer shareholders could enjoy a 2.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Energizer's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.

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

Energizer's most recent dividend payout was on 10 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Energizer share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Energizer's shares have ranged in value from as little as $26.6 up to $53.84. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ENR.US volatility(beta: 1.26)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 Energizer's is 1.2631. This would suggest that Energizer's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
