Is Interface under- or over-valued?

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

Interface's P/E ratio

Interface'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, Interface 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.

Interface's PEG ratio

Interface's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.59. 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 Interface's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Interface's EBITDA

Interface's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$172.6 million.

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

Shorting Interface shares

There are currently 881,495 Interface shares held short by investors – that's known as Interface's "short interest". This figure is 23.5% down from 1.2 million last month.

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

Interface's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Interface's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Interface shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Interface shares traded daily (recently around 648158.08823529). Interface's SIR currently stands at 1.36. In other words for every 100,000 Interface shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1360 shares are currently held short.

However Interface's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Interface shares, or, against the total number of tradable Interface shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Interface's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Interface shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0209% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Interface shares, roughly 21 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 Interface.

Interface share dividends

10%

Dividend payout ratio: 9.87% of net profits

Recently Interface has paid out, on average, around 9.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Interface shareholders could enjoy a 0.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Interface's case, that would currently equate to about $0.04 per share.

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

Interface's most recent dividend payout was on 18 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Interface's shares ever split?

Interface's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 June 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 Interface shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Interface shares which in turn could have impacted Interface's share price.

Interface share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Interface's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.06 up to $17.675. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TILE.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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Interface's is 1.8058. This would suggest that Interface's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
