Is Fossil Group under- or over-valued?

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

Fossil Group's P/E ratio

Fossil Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 105x. In other words, Fossil Group shares trade at around 105x recent earnings.

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.

Fossil Group's EBITDA

Fossil Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$153.8 million.

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

Shorting Fossil Group shares

There are currently 7.4 million Fossil Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Fossil Group's "short interest". This figure is 15.6% down from 8.8 million last month.

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

Fossil Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fossil Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fossil Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fossil Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Fossil Group's SIR currently stands at 5.32. In other words for every 100,000 Fossil Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5320 shares are currently held short.

However Fossil Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fossil Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fossil Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fossil Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fossil Group shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.2334% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fossil Group shares, roughly 233 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 Fossil Group.

Fossil Group share dividends

We're not expecting Fossil Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Fossil Group's shares ever split?

Fossil Group's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 12 April 2004. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Fossil Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Fossil Group shares which in turn could have impacted Fossil Group's share price.

Fossil Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Fossil Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.69 up to $13.08. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FOSL.US volatility(beta: 1.38)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 Fossil Group's is 1.3833. This would suggest that Fossil Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
