Is J-and-J Snack Foods under- or over-valued?

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

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Shorting J-and-J Snack Foods shares

There are currently 918,063 J-and-J Snack Foods shares held short by investors – that's known as J-and-J Snack Foods's "short interest". This figure is 6.6% down from 983,098 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting J-and-J Snack Foods shares can be evaluated.

J-and-J Snack Foods's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

J-and-J Snack Foods's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of J-and-J Snack Foods shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of J-and-J Snack Foods shares traded daily (recently around 69974.31402439). J-and-J Snack Foods's SIR currently stands at 13.12. In other words for every 100,000 J-and-J Snack Foods shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13120 shares are currently held short.

However J-and-J Snack Foods's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of J-and-J Snack Foods shares, or, against the total number of tradable J-and-J Snack Foods shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case J-and-J Snack Foods's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 J-and-J Snack Foods shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0799% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable J-and-J Snack Foods shares, roughly 80 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against J-and-J Snack Foods.

Recently J-and-J Snack Foods has paid out, on average, around 1.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.68% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), J-and-J Snack Foods shareholders could enjoy a 1.68% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In J-and-J Snack Foods's case, that would currently equate to about $2.358 per share.

While J-and-J Snack Foods's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that J-and-J Snack Foods is investing more in its future growth.

Have J-and-J Snack Foods's shares ever split?

J-and-J Snack Foods's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 5 January 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 J-and-J Snack Foods shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for J-and-J Snack Foods shares which in turn could have impacted J-and-J Snack Foods's share price.
