Is Escalade Incorporated under- or over-valued?

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

Escalade Incorporated's P/E ratio

Escalade Incorporated's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Escalade Incorporated shares trade at around 10x 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.

Escalade Incorporated's PEG ratio

Escalade Incorporated's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.25. 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 Escalade Incorporated'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 Escalade Incorporated shares

There are currently 207,918 Escalade Incorporated shares held short by investors – that's known as Escalade Incorporated's "short interest". This figure is 9.5% down from 229,778 last month.

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

Escalade Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Escalade Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Escalade Incorporated shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Escalade Incorporated shares traded daily (recently around 42432.244897959). Escalade Incorporated's SIR currently stands at 4.9. In other words for every 100,000 Escalade Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4900 shares are currently held short.

However Escalade Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Escalade Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Escalade Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Escalade Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Escalade Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0232% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Escalade Incorporated shares, roughly 23 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 Escalade Incorporated.

Escalade Incorporated share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 27.45% of net profits

Recently Escalade Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 27.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.82% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Escalade Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 2.82% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Escalade Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.

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

Escalade Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 13 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Escalade Incorporated's shares ever split?

Escalade Incorporated's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 May 2004. 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 Escalade Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Escalade Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Escalade Incorporated's share price.

Escalade Incorporated share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Escalade Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.1223 up to $25.5187. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ESCA.US volatility(beta: 1.44)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Escalade Incorporated's is 1.4386. This would suggest that Escalade Incorporated's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
