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 25x. In other words, H-BFuller Company shares trade at around 25x 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 2.1748. 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.

H-BFuller Company's EBITDA

H-BFuller Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $411.4 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a H-BFuller Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

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 8.7% up from 1.0 million 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 428667.3151751). H-BFuller Company's SIR currently stands at 2.57. In other words for every 100,000 H-BFuller Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2570 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 0.0292% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable H-BFuller Company shares, roughly 29 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

21%

Dividend payout ratio: 20.73% of net profits

Recently H-BFuller Company has paid out, on average, around 20.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.98% 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 0.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In H-BFuller Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.65 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 5 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 April 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 $30.0792 up to $68.66. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FUL.US volatility(beta: 1.81)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 H-BFuller Company's is 1.8125. 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).
