Is Fox Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Fox Corporation's P/E ratio

Fox Corporation'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, Fox Corporation 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.

Fox Corporation's PEG ratio

Fox Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 11.641. 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 Fox Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Fox Corporation's EBITDA

Fox Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.1 billion.

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

Shorting Fox Corporation shares

There are currently 1.2 million Fox Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Fox Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 18.5% down from 1.5 million last month.

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

Fox Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fox Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fox Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fox Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Fox Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.18. In other words for every 100,000 Fox Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1180 shares are currently held short.

However Fox Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fox Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fox Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fox Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fox Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0027% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fox Corporation shares, roughly 3 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 Fox Corporation.

Fox Corporation share dividends

11%

Dividend payout ratio: 11.18% of net profits

Recently Fox Corporation has paid out, on average, around 11.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Fox Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fox Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.46 per share.

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

Fox Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 6 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Fox Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Fox Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.1981 up to $42.14. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FOX.US volatility(beta: 1.27)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 Fox Corporation's is 1.2703. This would suggest that Fox Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
