Is Herman Miller under- or over-valued?
Valuing Herman Miller stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Herman Miller's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Herman Miller's P/E ratio
Herman Miller's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Herman Miller shares trade at around 15x 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.
Herman Miller's PEG ratio
Herman Miller's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.31. 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 Herman Miller's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Herman Miller's EBITDA
Herman Miller's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $326 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Herman Miller's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Herman Miller shares
There are currently 5.8 million Herman Miller shares held short by investors – that's known as Herman Miller's "short interest". This figure is 26.1% up from 4.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Herman Miller shares can be evaluated.
Herman Miller's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Herman Miller's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Herman Miller shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Herman Miller shares traded daily (recently around 839865.51226551). Herman Miller's SIR currently stands at 6.93. In other words for every 100,000 Herman Miller shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6930 shares are currently held short.
However Herman Miller's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Herman Miller shares, or, against the total number of tradable Herman Miller shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Herman Miller's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Herman Miller shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.0992% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Herman Miller shares, roughly 99 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 Herman Miller.

Herman Miller share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 22.46% of net profits
Recently Herman Miller has paid out, on average, around 22.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Herman Miller shareholders could enjoy a 1.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Herman Miller's case, that would currently equate to about $0.562 per share.
While Herman Miller's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Herman Miller is investing more in its future growth.
Herman Miller's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Herman Miller's shares ever split?
Herman Miller's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 March 1998. 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 Herman Miller shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Herman Miller shares which in turn could have impacted Herman Miller's share price.
Herman Miller share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Herman Miller's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.5086 up to $51.245. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Herman Miller's is 1.3281. This would suggest that Herman Miller's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
