Is Guess under- or over-valued?
Valuing Guess stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Guess's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Guess's P/E ratio
Guess's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Guess shares trade at around 16x 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.
Guess's PEG ratio
Guess's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.14. 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 Guess's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Guess's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $189.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Guess's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Guess shares
There are currently 5.4 million Guess shares held short by investors – that's known as Guess's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% up from 5.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Guess shares can be evaluated.
Guess's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Guess's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Guess shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Guess shares traded daily (recently around 826499.69372129). Guess's SIR currently stands at 6.53. In other words for every 100,000 Guess shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6530 shares are currently held short.
However Guess's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Guess shares, or, against the total number of tradable Guess shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Guess's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Guess shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1384% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Guess shares, roughly 138 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 Guess.

Guess share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 45.45% of net profits
Recently Guess has paid out, on average, around 45.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Guess shareholders could enjoy a 2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Guess's case, that would currently equate to about $0.338 per share.
While Guess's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Guess may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Guess's most recent dividend payout was on 24 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Guess's shares ever split?
Guess's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 March 2007. 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 Guess shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Guess shares which in turn could have impacted Guess's share price.
Guess share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Guess's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.9108 up to $30.9976. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Guess's is 2.2356. This would suggest that Guess's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
