Is Foot Locker under- or over-valued?

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

Foot Locker's P/E ratio

Foot Locker's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Foot Locker shares trade at around 5x 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.

Shorting Foot Locker shares

There are currently 4.3 million Foot Locker shares held short by investors – that's known as Foot Locker's "short interest". This figure is 5.8% down from 4.6 million last month.

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

Foot Locker's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Foot Locker's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Foot Locker shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Foot Locker shares traded daily (recently around 2.3 million). Foot Locker's SIR currently stands at 1.85. In other words for every 100,000 Foot Locker shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1850 shares are currently held short.

However Foot Locker's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Foot Locker shares, or, against the total number of tradable Foot Locker shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Foot Locker's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Foot Locker shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0478% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Foot Locker shares, roughly 48 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 Foot Locker.

Foot Locker share dividends

9%

Dividend payout ratio: 9.3% of net profits

Recently Foot Locker has paid out, on average, around 9.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Foot Locker shareholders could enjoy a 2.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Foot Locker's case, that would currently equate to about $0.7 per share.

While Foot Locker's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Foot Locker is investing more in its future growth.

Foot Locker's most recent dividend payout was on 28 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Foot Locker's shares ever split?

Foot Locker's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 May 1990. 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 Foot Locker shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Foot Locker shares which in turn could have impacted Foot Locker's share price.

Foot Locker share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Foot Locker's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.9757 up to $66.4889. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FL.US volatility(beta: 1.34)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 Foot Locker's is 1.3444. This would suggest that Foot Locker's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
