Is H-BFuller Company under- or over-valued?
Valuing H-BFuller Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of H-BFuller Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
H-BFuller Company's P/E ratio
H-BFuller Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, H-BFuller Company shares trade at around 20x 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.
H-BFuller Company's PEG ratio
H-BFuller Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2309. 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 H-BFuller Company'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 H-BFuller Company shares
There are currently 1.1 million H-BFuller Company shares held short by investors – that's known as H-BFuller Company's "short interest". This figure is 25.1% up from 894,547 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting H-BFuller Company shares can be evaluated.
H-BFuller Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
H-BFuller Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of H-BFuller Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of H-BFuller Company shares traded daily (recently around 468259.41422594). H-BFuller Company's SIR currently stands at 2.39. In other words for every 100,000 H-BFuller Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2390 shares are currently held short.
However H-BFuller Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of H-BFuller Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable H-BFuller Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case H-BFuller Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 H-BFuller Company shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0215% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable H-BFuller Company shares, roughly 22 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 H-BFuller Company.

H-BFuller Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 19.3% of net profits
Recently H-BFuller Company has paid out, on average, around 19.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), H-BFuller Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In H-BFuller Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.655 per share.
While H-BFuller Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that H-BFuller Company is investing more in its future growth.
H-BFuller Company's most recent dividend payout was on 28 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have H-BFuller Company's shares ever split?
H-BFuller Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 6 August 2006. 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 H-BFuller Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for H-BFuller Company shares which in turn could have impacted H-BFuller Company's share price.
H-BFuller Company share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, H-BFuller Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $43.4031 up to $70.3941. 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 H-BFuller Company's is 1.7954. This would suggest that H-BFuller Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
