Is JOANN under- or over-valued?

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

JOANN's P/E ratio

JOANN's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, JOANN shares trade at around 4x 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.

However, JOANN's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the specialty retail industry or those of similar companies.


JOANN's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $287 million.

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

To put JOANN's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

Shorting JOANN shares

There are currently 3.4 million JOANN shares held short by investors – that's known as JOANN's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% down from 3.5 million last month.

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

JOANN's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

JOANN's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of JOANN shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of JOANN shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). JOANN's SIR currently stands at 3.25. In other words for every 100,000 JOANN shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3250 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare JOANN's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However JOANN's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of JOANN shares, or, against the total number of tradable JOANN shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case JOANN's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 JOANN shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.2708% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable JOANN shares, roughly 271 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 JOANN.

JOANN share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 8.85% of net profits

Recently JOANN has paid out, on average, around 8.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), JOANN shareholders could enjoy a 3.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In JOANN's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.

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

JOANN's most recent dividend payout was on 23 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

JOANN's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
